Week Commencing 9th October 2017
As you are aware the year 7 residential is quickly approaching and in order to complete our final checks we need to complete some important contact and medical information. The attached permission slip from Chasewater must be completed in order for your child to be able to attend the residential.
If you are yet to complete payment of your child’s trip via parent pay or to have made alternative arrangements with the academy we request that you do as soon as possible.
During the 3 day 2 night residential students will be taking part in a range of exciting activities designed to help them work with their new friends and teaching staff. This exciting experience will include a range of activities such as climbing, BMX, archery, bush craft, orienteering and water sports. Additional information about Chasewater can be found at: https://www.entrustoutdoors.co.uk/chasewater.
We have also enclosed the suggested kit list provided to us by Chasewater. Students will be staying in a variation of Dormitory’s and Yurts, therefore we recommend that they bring warm bedding for the evening. We will be taking part in water-sports if possible therefore we recommend that students bring the recommend equipment for water based activities.
We will be holding a meeting for Parents/Carers on Tuesday 26th September from 5pm at Thistley Hough where a representative from Entrust and myself will be able to answer any questions/queries you may have.
We request that all medical and consent forms are returned to your child’s form tutor by Friday 29th September.
If you have any require and further information please do not hesitate to contact The Academy.
