Year 8 Outdoor Residential Visit to Bewerley Park, 2-6 March 2020
Plans are now being made for the launch of our outdoor education residential visit to Bewerley Park at Pateley Bridge and we would like to take this opportunity to invite your son/daughter to attend.
Bewerley Park Outdoor Education Centre is set on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales; it has many local landmarks such as Brimham Rocks, How Stean Gorge and the Nidderdale Valley, which means the centre offers a high quality, outdoor experience in a wonderful, natural environment. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a range of outdoor learning opportunities such as: mountain biking; ghyll scrambling; caving; gorge walking; canoeing; kayaking; sailing; high ropes and zip wire (heights); low ropes and climbing.
All activities are led by fully qualified and experienced Bewerley Park staff who hold National Governing Body qualifications. Students will be provided with waterproof protective clothing, walking boots and wellington boots. We will travel to and from the College by coach and accommodation will be provided in same-sex dormitories, which include bedding and washing facilities. All food will be catered for by Bewerley Park.
This residential opportunity sits within a wide, outdoor learning curriculum that is offered to all students and is an important part of the students’ personal development, linking very clearly to the learning capabilities being studied at the College. This provides a fantastic opportunity for students to build strong relationships with each other and with staff, through a valuable learning experience in the outdoors and we want all students to be able to access this opportunity. The cost of this outdoor residential is £345.00. The cost includes all accommodation, travel and insurance, as well as specialist instruction and use of equipment. If you feel this cost will be a barrier for you, please contact me by email/telephone as soon as possible.
The residential will take place from 2-6 March 2020 and the dates for payments are as follows:
- £20.00 deposit due no later than Friday 13 December 2019
- the remaining balance of £325.00 can be paid in instalments to suit you
- full payment is required no later than Friday 28 February 2020.
Please complete the attached reply slip and return it to the College Office, with a £20.00 non-refundable deposit, or the full amount if you prefer, by Friday 13 December 2019. Payment can be made by ‘ParentPay’ or by cheque made payable to Caedmon College Whitby.
We will hold a parents’ meeting nearer the time at which we will give you more information. If you would like more information before sending in the non-refundable deposit, please do not hesitate to contact me at the College.
