Dear Year 7/8 student
|Activities Week – Thorpe Park & Driver Wood paintballing centre|
You will be participating on the above trip during Activities Week (10th, 11th & 12th July) this year. We will be visiting Thorpe Park on Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th July and Driver Wood paintball centre https://driverwoodpaintball.co.uk/ on Friday 12th July.
We will leave school at 9am via coach each morning. I ask that all students are in the main hall at 8.30am for registration on each day. By being in the main hall at 8.30am will allow time for registration and for us to leave promptly at 9am.
For Thorpe Park students will need to take a packed lunch and a drink. Please also bring a re-usable water bottle so it can be re-filled during the day. We will be leaving the park at 2pm on both Wednesday and Thursday. Aiming to be back at 3.15pm-3.30pm traffic permitting.
For Driver Wood paintball centre the following are included in the package that we booked.
- Hot lunch
- Refreshments (we still advise students take a re-usable water bottle)
- Equipment (overalls, face masks etc)
- 300 paint pellets (this should be a sufficient amount however students will be able to purchase more if they require)
- 7 game zones (the centre have advised that time permitting we should be able to get 4-6 games completed.)
We will leave Driver Wood on Friday at 2pm. Aiming to be back at school for 2.15pm.
Students will of course be able to message parents/carers on the day when we are leaving the venues.
Please ensure you have applied sun cream each day if the forecast is for warm weather.
Mr R Sallows
