Year 6: Carlton Lodge (View Website)

Dear Parents,

As most of you are aware we aim to improve our residential programme all the time and try to give you all as much notice as we can to allow you to prepare for the trips. The courses and centres we have chosen offer a progression in outdoor education through KS2.

Y6 will be visiting Carlton Lodge near Thirsk in the Summer Term. We feel that this centre offers Y6 children more of a challenge after their progressive outdoor education programme through KS2. It offers the children more opportunities to experience a better range of natural outdoor activities offsite, such as rock climbing, caving and gorge walking. As well as challenging activities at the centre base, including kayaking and raft building on a 4 acre lake, high ropes and zip wire. All activities are instructor led until 8.30pm each evening. The current Y6 have just returned having had a fantastic time.

Carlton Lodge is located on the outskirts of Carlton Minniot near Thirsk, the centre is on an extensive site with excellent indoor and outdoor facilities. We have provisionally booked the accommodation for 10th-14th July 2017.  School will help subsidise the cost for the trip which will bring the cost to £260 per child. The price includes 4 nights’ accommodation, all food (bring own packed lunch on first day), activities and transport.

To confirm a place for your child please complete the consent form below and return with a £50 deposit by Monday 26th September. This will be followed by 3 further payments of £70 by 14th November, 12th February and 7th April.

If you would like to discuss this any further don’t hesitate to contact me, parents and carers comments are always appreciated. Also if your child is Pupil Premium the cost of trip may be subsidised.

Thank you

Mrs C Hardy
