Now that the Year 6 children have returned from Lockerbie Manor, the staff who went this year and who have also attended Robinwood in the past have had a lengthy discussion about where to book next year. Overall the staff favoured Robinwood over the two venues but unfortunately they do not have the dates available or a good price they can offer us for next year. So we have been in touch with several other residential centres and we have chosen a new venue for 2019.
In September 2019, our now Year 5 group (will then be Year 6) will have the opportunity to go to Ford Castle for 3 days (2 nights). Mr Dixon has also been to this venue from previous years in teaching and speaks very highly of the organisation and activities they have available. You can find out more about the venue from accessing the link below. It will be very exciting for the children to be able to stay in a castle!
Mrs Raine will be sending out letters shortly so parents/carers can pay a deposit to book and secure their child’s place. The non-refundable deposit is £25 and you will be provided with a payment card so you can pay small amounts off the balance before the full payment deadline in July 2019.
Children will go to Ford Castle on Monday 30th September and return on Wednesday 2nd October 2019. The cost of the trip is £135 per child, and our Private School Fund will cover the cost of the return coach.
