Miss Warnock & Mrs Kitching will lead the trip and will be accompanied by three other adults.
The cost of the trip including entrance and activities is £12 and will be added to the school fees. A packed lunch will be provided by School. The children should bring a small bottle of water and a piece of fruit / biscuit for their morning snack.
