Year 7 Geography Trip to Hengistbury Head – Mon 7th, Tues 8th, Thurs 10th & Fri 11th June 2021

Dear Parent/Guardian

Year 7 Geography Trip to Hengistbury Head – Mon 7th, Tues 8th, Thurs 10th & Fri 11th June 2021

We are hoping to offer pupils in Year 7 the chance to go on a Geography trip to Hengistbury in June. The Hengistbury Head trip is geographical in its emphasis.  The work will involve investigating the way in which the coastal area is managed and how the sea erodes and shapes the coastline. It will be necessary to ask for a voluntary contribution of £12.00 to cover the coach journey and the photocopying of the worksheets. I am sure that you will understand that unless sufficient voluntary contributions are received, the visit may not take place since we have no alternative source of funding.

Pupils will travel by bus, departing from school after morning tutor time and returning at 3.15pm.  All pupils should wear face coverings while on the bus. Pupils should not be in school uniform but should be smart, sensible and tidy; cameras are the pupils own responsibility.  Packed lunches and waterproofs must be brought.

The Hengistbury Head trip will run on Mon 7th, Tues 8th, Thurs 10th & Fri 11th June 2021. The trip will leave Kings’ at 9.00am and return at about 3.15pm.  Pupils will be supervised in groups of 20 and will be outdoors all day.

Please complete the online Consent Form here  by Friday 7th May.

Please note that due to limited availability, places will be booked by pulling names out of a hat.  Those who secure a place will then receive a letter requesting payment by ParentPay and stating which day they will be attending.

PUPILS MUST CHECK THE GROUP LISTS WHEN THEY GO TO THE HUMANITIES CORRIDORS TO MAKE SURE THEIR BOOKING HAS BEEN REGISTERED.

Finally your child’s photograph may be used in displays and other educational presentations.  If you have any objections please tick the ‘No’ box on the Consent Form.

Yours faithfully

Mr Strachan

Head of Geography
