Key information

The Coach will leave the school at 8.15 am promptly and return at 4.15 pm approximately. If there is a delay on the motorway, students will be instructed to text/phone parents for collection. The cost of the visit will be £26 which should by paid via Parent pay. Your son should bring a packed lunch and a drink. He should not bring expensive items such as games consoles, MP3 players or large amounts of money. We suggest that he brings no more than £10. Whatever he brings he will need to carry around all day, so you should advise him to pack the minimum in a backpack and wear sensible clothing. During the activity it will be possible to contact myself on the following telephone number 07512795040. This is a school mobile telephone number and must only be used in emergencies
