Y6 & Y5 Residential Letter 2019

15th March 2019

Dear Parents/Carers

I am pleased to be able to offer your child the opportunity to take part in a school trip to the Lake District from Monday 24th June to Wednesday 26th June 2019 (3 days 2 nights).  With the increasing costs of residential trips we have tried to find a trip which would provide a cost effective experience for the children.  I am delighted to say that the Youth Hostelling Association offer a variety of packages and we will be staying at the beautiful Victorian Manor at Langdale, High Close in Cumbria.

What’s it all about?

It’s about having fun while taking part in all sorts of discovery activities designed to help your child learn and develop new skills and really shine as an individual and also as part of a team.(Think Bear Grylls!)  The children will be involved in a wide range of fun and exciting outdoor activities such as archery, GPS orienteering, shelter building, fire-making, camp craft & team challenges.

For many children this may be their first experience of staying away from home without you. YHA staff and the school staff will be on hand throughout to encourage, reassure and help, so that your child returns home even more confident and independent with a real sense of achievement.

We have chosen to book with YHA because not only do they offer excellent value but they also have a reassuring 50+ years of experience organising trips for schools. Their extremely high standards ensure that your child will be in safe hands at all times.

What does it cost?

The cost per person is £175, which can be paid in instalments prior to the trip.  

The cost includes:

If your child would like to reserve a place on the residential a £30 non- refundable deposit should be received in school by Friday 29th March; the outstanding amount can then be paid in instalments up until Friday 7th June.

There will be an information meeting for parents nearer to the trip but if you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me or check out the website https://groups.yha.org.uk/hostel/yha-langdale

Kind regards
