Yr 6 to Hindleap Warren
9th February 2018
Residential Outdoor Adventurous Activity
Year 6 October 2018
We are once again planning to visit Hindleap Warren, Outdoor Education Centre, near Forest Row for our residential trip from the morning of Wednesday 10th October 2018 through to the afternoon of Friday 12th October 2018.
We organise our visit at the beginning of the academic year because we have found that the children gain so many valuable skills that we can build upon and refer to during the rest of the year.
At Hindleap Warren the children complete a variety of OAA activities and we have always found that the instructors are very supportive of the children as they realise this may be the first time that children may have encountered these activities. The activities may include: rock climbing, canoeing, orienteering, abseiling, low ropes, high ropes, team building, archery and obstacles.
The total cost of the trip will be £213.50. This includes all meals, accommodation, and all outdoor adventurous activities led by trained instructors. All children are expected to stay overnight and only in exceptional circumstances will a day visit be considered, please speak to Miss Powell. As discussed at the parents meeting on 19th February to keep costs to an absolute minimum we will travel to and from the centre in parents’ cars. Please indicate if you are able to help in this way. Closer to the date we will arrange another parent meeting to discuss transport.
As the visit to Hindleap Warren runs during school time we do ask that all children attend. We appreciate that in this financial climate, the added cost of a school trip is a burden. We have had to carefully consider this year whether the trip goes ahead as the school itself has no additional funds to fund the trip. We have therefore put together a payment plan so that parents can pay in instalments. If you would prefer, you can pay in one lump sum, however we will need all final payments by 29th June 2018. Experience has shown us that it is important to try to make frequent payments to avoid larger payments just before the trip commences. We ask that any family that is experiencing financial difficulties contacts Miss Powell in confidence.
Please complete and return the attached permission slip to school by Friday 23rd February to inform us whether your child can attend.
The activity trip promises once again to be action-packed for all concerned and is always a great learning experience for the children. If you would like to discuss this with me further please do not hesitate to contact me. More details about the centre can be found on www.hindleapwarren.co.uk
Thank you for your support.
