As part of our Business and Enterprise status, we have organised a number of enterprise activities for Monday to Wednesday 11 - 13 July. The aim of the activities is to develop the enterprise skills of Communication and Team Work. Most of the activities are based on the school site, but a small number of students will opt for activities that will take them out of school and these might incur a small cost. In these cases you will receive a letter seeking your permission. In the event that a trip is undersubscribed then it may be cancelled and alternative activities will be arranged.
Unless you have been told otherwise by the trip organisers, students will arrive at The Abbey School at 8.50am as usual and make their way to their first activity. Lunch will be from 12.00pm to 12.40pm, when the afternoon activity will begin. School will end at 3.20pm as usual, unless your child is on one of the external trips.
Students will not be in school uniform for the three days, but are asked to wear something sensible for the activities they are taking. Good solid footwear is essential. It is also important that they observe the weather forecast as it could be very hot or possibly wet. A hat and sun cream will be important as a lot of activities are outdoors.
The students will be working with children from other year groups and staff they might have not met before. We hope that they will get a lot out of the experience.
