Year 4 Residential trip to the Kingswood Centre, Grosvenor Hall, Ashford
We are delighted to inform you that this year, for the first time, Upton are organising a two day (one night) residential educational adventure activity course at the Kingswood Centre at Grosvenor Hall, Ashford, in June!
We are very fortunate to have secured a booking as the centre is extremely popular with school groups.
The trip is for Year 4 pupils and will take place from 19th to 20th June 2014. The cost of the visit will be approximatel £66 and includes return travel by coach, full board, accommodation and a full programme of activities.
Kingswood Residential courses organised by the school are an optional, but highly valuable part of the National Curriculum. Pupils benefit hugely from the experience, both educationally and socially, and we feel certain that the ‘Adventure Choice’ module which we have chosen for this year to hopefully include (but subject to confirmation) zip wire, sky climb, and climbing wall, will prove to be exceptionally enjoyable and challenging.
If you wish your child to be part of this exciting opportunity, please download and complete the slip attached below and return to Mrs Ballen by Wednesday 12th March. A further letter confirming the exact cost of the trip along with a payment card and a request for a £20 deposit will be sent out on Friday 14th March (deposit due Wed 19th March).
We will be arranging a parents evening closer to the trip to explain final arrangements but in the meantime if you wish to find out more about the ethos of Kingswood, its courses, supervisory and safety measures, please visit www.kingswood.co.uk, in particular the “Parents section”.
