Year 6 Herd Farm Residential 20-24th November

Dear parent/carer, 

The following information regarding the Y6 residential visit to Herd Farm has  been shared;

  • Mrs Norris’s class will go on Monday 20st November 2022 and return on Wednesday 22nd November 2023. 

  • Miss Smith’s class will go on Wednesday 22nd  November 2022 and return on Friday 24th November 2023. 

It is worth noting that, if we don’t have sufficient uptake, we will combine into one group.

The cost last year was £112 per pupil. Following a substantial subsidy for all pupils from the school budget, the total cost per pupil this year is £80. In order to secure a place for your child on the residential visit, you must pay a deposit of £40 via School Money by Tuesday 31st October.

The remaining balance needs to be paid in two further instalments of £20 by Friday 26th January and Friday the 1st of March as the final payment. Payment may also be made in a lump sum if you are able to do so and this will help school.

All of the exciting activities which the children will be involved in during their visit are all included into the cost as is transportation. Each child will need to take a packed lunch from home on their day of departure. All children will receive an evening meal on their arrival day, followed by breakfast, lunch and evening meal on the middle day and finally, breakfast and lunch on their return home day. These meals are provided by Herd Farm’s catering department and are included in the cost.

Thank you. 

Kind regards, 

Mrs Norris & Miss Smith
