Glebe at Wembley

Football Teams Trip to see England v Montenegro at Wembley

Thanks to Mr Budden, we received 50 free tickets to see last night’s Euro 2020 qualifier. Thanks also to Mr Dwyer who organised the trip and who has written a piece about the experience:

On Thursday night 50 of our pupils, parents and staff set off to Wembley to watch England vs Montenegro in England's 1000th international match. Spirits were high on the coach and everyone was confident of a comfortable victory, but I don't think   even the most optimistic of us expected England to be winning 5-0 at half time. The second half wasn't as interesting as the first half and the children (plus Mr Budden) spent most of it trying to start a Mexican wave! The children were impeccably behaved and were a real credit to the school, it is no mean feat trying to negotiate your way along Wembley Way when there are 71,000 people trying to do the same but the children stayed with their adults and we got back on the coach with the same number of people we left with! Many thanks to Mr Budden for sorting the tickets out and coming along to support, to Mrs Lonsbrough and Mrs Hampshire for their support and to the parents for volunteering too, without you the trip wouldn't have gone ahead.
