Year 5 Calvert Trust Residential

19th September 2018


Following last year’s successful Year 5 visit, I am excited to announce that we are again organising a three day residential trip for our Year 5 pupils. This year’s residential will take place at Calvert Trust at Kielder Reservoir during the week beginning Monday 11th March 2019.

This 3 day/2 night residential visit is an optional enrichment activity that builds upon the knowledge, skills and understanding pupils have gained in lessons as well as developing team building, personal, social and thinking skills. Pupils benefit hugely from the experience, both educationally and socially, and I feel certain that the Calvert Trust programme that we have chosen will prove to be both enjoyable and very worthwhile. This will include some high adrenaline activities to allow for individual “challenge by choice” opportunities.

I will be holding an information evening on Wednesday 26th September 2018 at 6.30pm in the Main Hall where I will present information about the trip, information about practicalities and activities, and I will give out the required paperwork to any parents or carers who wish to sign their child up for this trip. Pupils are welcome to attend too with an accompanying adult. If you are unable to attend the presentation, please inform Mrs Jewitt in the main office and we will send home the relevant paperwork.

The cost of this visit is £195 with a non-refundable deposit of £60 (payable before Thursday 8th November 2018), which will be needed to secure your child’s place. Staged payments are welcomed on an agreement letter to follow.

Yours sincerely
