Year 8 - Langdale Residential Trip
Information regarding Year 8 Trip to Langdale
Thank you very much to those of you who came out in the rain last night for the year 8 information evening on Langdale. For those who couldn’t attend, please follow the link below to view the presentation and key information that we went through:
Group 1 - Monday 11th October – Wednesday 13th October
F1, F3, F5, F7
Group 2- Wednesday 13th October- Friday 15th October
F2, F4, F6, F8
All students must be at school, in the dance studio at 8.30am on their day of departure so that the coach can be loaded up and ready to leave at 9am – latecomers will be left behind so please ensure your child arrives on time. Pupils should wear their own, weather appropriate clothing on this day. The students will return to school at 14:50 on the last day of their trip to ensure they can get home like normal. Students will be given a packed lunch for the first day of the trip but may bring additional snacks if preferred.
The kit needed for the week is as follows:
Waterproof jacket (lightweight waterproof is fine)
Sturdy outdoor shoes (recommended, not essential)
Old clothes that are ok to get muddy
Multiple pairs of socks
Plastic bag for wet kit
Toiletries (including shampoo, body wash, toothpaste etc)
alongside all other items that a child would need for a stay away e.g. pyjamas, underwear, sanitary products etc. Pupils will be expected to take part in activities in all weather conditions so please ensure your child has spare clothes to change in to in the event that they get wet.
Pupils are permitted to bring £5 for the onsite tuck shop if they wish. This sells confectionary and snacks.
We kindly request that no electronics are brought on to the trip, including mobile phones. Where we are staying has no signal or wifi and we find phones particularly to be very distracting for pupils in attendance. There is a landline at the youth hostel which pupils are welcome to use and parents/carers will be given a contact number for in the case of an emergency.
The trip has been organised with the Youth Hostel Association. Our Lady’s staff will be supervising the children throughout the trip, with the YHA’s excellent and fully qualified staff leading all activities.
Behaviour in school in the weeks before the trip must be excellent for all children. Bad behaviour in school will result in children being withdrawn from the trip. We anticipate that behaviour at the centre will be excellent with all children having a fantastic time.
If you have any questions please contact Miss Watkins or Mr Cope in school on 0161 507 9640.
