Alton Towers Trip

The Emergency Contact Number is: 07970 732 718

Dear Parent / Carer,

I am writing to you with all the details for our Alton Towers trip this week.

I am excited that we are able to take nearly 900 pupils to Alton Towers over Thursday and Friday of this week. The pupils will be able to wear their own clothes and can either take money to purchase food and drinks or take their own provisions. The weather forecast is looking very mixed for both days, but it is looking more likely that there will be rain – please make sure your children are appropriately dressed for the weather.

Pupils will be issued on arrival at Alton Towers with a wristband that contains the school emergency phone number for the day – 07970 732 718. Pupils will be instructed to contact this number only whilst in the park, as we have over 30 staff in the park both days and will be able to attend to your child’s needs much quicker. You are also able to use this number if you need to contact us.

We have 5 coaches leaving from outside St. Winifreds church on Mauldeth Road and 4 coaches leaving from outside school – this information will be emailed as soon as the coach company confirm these arrangements. The meeting time is 8am, with a departure time of 8:15, therefore it is very important that the children are on time as we will be unable to wait if they are late. We will be leaving Alton Towers at approx. 5pm and all coaches will arrive back to the front of school between 18:30 – 19:00 – if you are collecting your child by car, do not park on Priestnall Road or near to the corner of Mersey Road, as it will hinder the coaches and can create traffic issues.

If you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Mrs Helen Drury

Year 11 leavers hoodies

Dear Parent/Carer,

As you will be aware your child is in their last year at Priestnall. Leaving secondary school is often a landmark
in a student’s educational life and it is nice to remember this significant moment in a positive way. This year,
we have liaised with a high-quality clothing company to provide students with “leavers’ hoodies”.

The Priestnall logo will be placed on the front left hand side of the hoodie and the year 21 will be placed on
the back, along with the word ‘leavers’. Students can personalise their hoodie by changing the colour, style
and size. They will also be able to add a nickname to their hoodie if they choose to do so, at the additional cost
of £4.00.

This year, we have decided to open an online shop with the company; this makes the ordering process much
easier and more secure for both parties as no cash needs to be brought into school.

We have negotiated an excellent price of £22.50 for a hoody and £25.50 for a zippy, which includes delivery to
the school. The online shop will close on the 31/05/21 so all orders must be placed before then in order for
the printing process to take place. Once all orders are in, the school’s full order can be processed, the hoodies
delivered to school and then the hoodies will be ready to distribute during the Year 11 Leavers’ Celebration
Event (date to be advised and subject to Covid restrictions), or on GCSE Results day in August (again, subject
to Covid restrictions).

Please see below for the link to the Leavers’ Hoodies Online Shop where you can place your order.  

Yours faithfully
Mrs H Fern
College Manager (Ryland’s)
