Year 6 Whitby Residential Trip 201804Jun2018

A residential visit to Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast has been arranged for Year 6 children. The visit will take place between Monday 4th June to Friday 8th June 2018. Planned activities will include: visiting Whitby Abbey and church, Whitby museums (including the working lifeboat), a boat trip, beach games, sandcastle competitions, lots of walking and a visit to a high ropes adventure course! A day trip to Robin Hood's Bay has also been arranged and an open-top bus tour around Whitby. This year the Esplanade Hotel, 2 The Esplanade,Whitby (Tel.: 01947 605053) has been booked. Occassionally, due to the number of pupils in Year 6, it is possible that there will be some pupils per room who may have to sleep on ‘put up’ beds. The cost of the trip this year will be a maximum of £250.00. The final price will be confirmed once all quotes have been received, the number of pupils going confirmed and staffing cover arrangements finalised. A non refundable deposit of £40 is required by Wednesday 20th December 2017. The remaining balance will be required by Wednesday 18th April 2018. All payments should be made using +Pay. Parents will have the opportunity to pay in instalments once their deposit has been received and a final price calculated. Any parent experiencing difficulty in meeting the cost of the trip can discuss it, in the strictest confidence, with Ms Fieldsend. A good behaviour record at school is a pre-requisite for this visit. There will be a meeting for parents and children on Tuesday 24th April 2018 @ 6.00 pm to discuss further details of the trip, including the itinerary, medical information and a kit list. It is really important for both children and parents to attend this meeting so please put it in your diary now
