Dear Parents/Carers

BBL Play Offs Final - O2, London - Sunday 20th May 2018

We would like to invite your child to the BBL Play Offs Final, at the O2, London, on Sunday 20th May 2018.  This will provide an ideal opportunity for students to observe high quality sports performance.

Students will travel in the school mini bus, leaving school at 9:00am and returning to school at approximately 8.15pm.  The cost of the trip will be £40.00; this includes transportation and entrance fee.  There will be an opportunity for students to eat when we are at the O2. If they would like to take this opportunity, students will need to bring additional money for this, if not a packed lunch is sufficient.  Students will need to bring a packed supper for the journey home.

This is an educational visit and the school expects students to behave in a responsible manner at all times and accept staff and parent instructions without question.  We ask that you reinforce the requirement for exemplary behaviour before your son/daughter takes part in this visit.

Please return the reply slip and payment in a sealed envelope to Mrs Griss at Student Services by Friday 2nd February 2018 (cheques payable to Samuel Ward Academy Trust).  If you would like to discuss finances or require any further details please do not hesitate to contact me, vbrownsell@tgschool.net or on the main school number.

Yours sincerely

Miss V Brownsell

Teacher of Physical Education
