Dear Parent/Carer,

We are delighted to be able to arrange a Year 7 residential trip from Monday 21st November 2022 to Tuesday 22nd November 2022 to the Conway Centre in Anglesey, North Wales. The trip will be open to all Y7 students and is designed to assist with the transition from Primary School to Secondary School.  Students will have the opportunity to get to know other pupils and staff and to take part in activities that they could not do in school.

The trip will depart on Monday 21st November. Pupils will travel by coach and arrive at the Conway Centre at midday. The Conway Centre is an Outdoor Adventure site that can provide all students with different learning experiences focussing on different skills. Pupils will be staying at the centre before returning to school on Tuesday evening.

The provisional cost of the trip will be £150.This covers the following:

  • 1 night`s accommodation at the Conway Centre
  • Coach travel to and from the centre
  • All activities – choices include High ropes, zip wire, climbing, raft building, sailing, canoeing, problem solving, orienteering, night walk and quiz
  • Comprehensive Insurance cover

In line with the School’s Charging and Remissions Policy the school can only request voluntary contributions (except for board and lodging on residential visits). No child will be discriminated against or treated differently according to how much their parents/carers have contributed. However, if there are insufficient contributions the visit may be cancelled.
