We are delighted to be able to provide an exciting trip to potential colleges for your son’s/daughter’s post 16 education. We will be visiting Truro/Penwith and Falmouth colleges and have been able to secure exciting taster workshops that they can sign up for. The visits aim to show our students the fantastic facilities available and to also meet staff and students. The trip will be accompanied by the Year 10 Tutor Team - Miss Pearce and Mr Hodgin.
The Local Education Authority are covering the majority of the costs, but we do need to ask for a £50 parental contribution that contributes to the travel arrangements. We would also ask that you provide your son/daughter with some money for food for their evening meal; please see kit list.
We would ask for the £50 contribution by Friday 25th May.
Please can you also complete the consent form (below) and provide us with the required information? We need this returned to school by Wednesday 16th May.
