Year 6 Highclere Castle Trip


10 December 2019


Dear Parents/Carers


We have arranged to take the Year 6 children on a trip to Highclere Castle.  This will take place on Tuesday 3 December 2019.  In class, we are learning about the River Nile and Ancient Egypt. 


All children must be dressed in school uniform.

The coach will be leaving the school at 9.15am and aims to return at approx. 3.00pm. We will keep you fully informed regarding the return journey.


The children will need a packed lunch on the day. However, they can bring their lunches in a rucksack as this will be easier to carry around all day.   NO GLASS BOTTLES, CANS OR SWEETS PLEASE.  

Those children who receive Free School Meals, can pre-order one via the School Gateway app.


The cost of this trip will be £17.00 per child, this can be paid in x2 instalments – this covers the cost of entrance and the coach.   Please note that the school have subsidised this trip to help with the cost.


This can be paid online via the School Gateway payment system along with giving parental consent. If you require assistance downloading the app, please see below or pop into the office.

Cash or cheque are also accepted. Please can cheques be made payable to Galley Hill Primary School.


Please can we make you aware that when trips are arranged, the cost is based on the total number of children in that particular year/class group. Depending on venue, we usually have to pay in advance. If for any reason your child is not in school on the day of the trip, unfortunately, we will not be able to refund you as payment to the venue and transport will have already been paid for.

Thank you for your support in this matter.


Unfortunately, if insufficient funds are received, the trip will have to be cancelled. If you have any queries or difficulties paying this, please contact the office.


We may require some parent/carer helpers for the trip. They will be asked to lead a small group of around 5 to 6 children. If you feel you are able to do this, please indicate when giving permission on school gateway.



Yours sincerely
