Butlins Letter to Parents

Final details for trip to Butlins, Bognor – Monday 21st July.

Our trip to Butlins on Monday is fast approaching. Please find below the final details.

All students should arrive at school by 8.15am and register by 8.20am. Students do not need to be in uniform and can wear their own clothes. Please make sure they are appropriately dressed.

Each year group will have their own coach with allocated members of staff.  We aim to arrive at Butlins by 10.45am.

Once on the resort all students will be shown the meeting points which will be staffed by APA staff at all times. They will also be given a phone number so they can ring their group leader in an emergency.

The coaches will leave the resort at 4.30pm and will arrive back at school at approximately 6.30pm.

It is absolutely essential that students arrive at the departure meeting point promptly. Please emphasise this to your child.

Students will need a packed lunch or money to buy food at the resort. There are plenty of eateries and vending machines to purchase food and drink. Students will be fully responsible for their own money.  Students will also need plenty to drink, lots of sun cream and a hat.

Students who wish to swim at SplashWorld must have their swimsuits/shorts and a towel. Students must be able to swim at least 25m to enter the slides and wave machines. The swimming pools are supervised by qualified lifeguards and APA staff will also be in or around the pools.

Everything at the resort is free except for the machines in the amusements and food and drink. There is normally an extra charge for the Crazy Golf and the Go karts. However, each student will receive a voucher which will entitle them to one free session at either venue. This has been paid for by the school. If students wish to return to the golf or go-karts, the charge is £3.00 for golf and £5.00 for the go-karts per session.

If you need to contact the trip, please call the school. For out of school hours please call  07711 007178.

This is for emergencies only.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries with regards to the trip.

Yours faithfully,

Jackie White

Vice Principal
