Here is most recent communication with regards to the residential:

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Currently we are unable to take the children away for overnight stays in line with government guidance, however the guidance is changing regularly and we hope that we will be able to take the children to Grittleton house in March 2021 as it is such a fabulous experience for them.

 

We have made the decision that we will add the residential on to the School Gateway to enable you to make payments so that if the guidance changes and we can take the children in March we are not asking you to pay a lump sum with very little notice. That said, I want to reassure you that any money that you pay for the residential will stay in the school private account and if we are not be able to go then we will be able to refund you as we did for the families who were unable to go during lockdown.

 

If you do have any questions please do contact the office.

Questions and Answers

We will update this page with questions asked by parents, carers and pupils that we feel others may benefit from knowing the answers to.

 

Does the site cater for dietary requirements?

Yes. Prior to our visit, we communicate all dietary requirements such as allergies, vegetarianism, and religious beliefs. There is always a choice at meal times but if there is nothing suitable on offer for those children with specific dietary requirements, an alternative will be provided.

 

What are the showers like?

All children will shower at least once daily. Showers are individual rooms with doors for privacy and curtains to keep towels dry while under the water. Children enter wrapped in a towel holding any toiletries required and come out wrapped in a towel (hopefully clean) to walk to their room to dry and dress. We recommend that before attending all children know how to wrap a towel around themselves, under their armpits, to ensure they are fully covered.

 

Is it fun?

Yes! Why do you think the staff like going?
