The day in the cathedral begins at 10.30 a.m. – remember that there will be about a dozen coaches arriving at the same time as yourselves, so leave time to queue and unload in your calculations.  It would be a help if schools relatively near to Ely could aim to arrive earlier so as to be in the cathedral ahead of those who have longer journeys and tighter schedules.

The service of worship usually finishes at about 1.45 p.m. Again it would be helpful if the schools with the shortest distance to travel gave their coach driver a slightly later pick up time in order to let those with long drives get away first.
