Poynton High School PTA organises Theatre Trips to shows in Manchester. As group bookings are made we get discounts from the theatres which mean that we are usually able to offer the ticket and transport for around the normal price of the ticket alone. (All prices include transport by coach from the High School) Any money left over after the tickets and transport are paid for goes into our PTA funds. Our trips and outings are open to anyone, you do not have to have a connection to the school. Full details of all our theatre trips can be found on our website www.poyntontheatretrips.org
