Additional information

Students will not need to bring ANY money with them on the trip – there is no opportunity to spend it.

The Bushcraft Company have a policy of NO electronic devices on site. Students are welcome to take their phones with them, to use on the coach, but they will be packed away in a secure box during the time we are on site.

To make emergency contact with the trip leader during the residential, please phone 07594 256 052.

The Bushcraft Company also have a policy of NO SNACKS OR SWEETS on site (largely to avoid problems with litter in a beautiful woodland environment). We would therefore ask that you please don’t send students with those items (apart from a few sweets to eat on the bus, perhaps!) 

  If you have any questions prior to the trip's departure, please contact Mrs A Monaghan (Progress Leader Key Stage 3) on 01964 613133 or via email at monaghana@wscampus.net
