The Geography fieldtrip to the Lake District this year will run from Wednesday 8th to Friday 10th June. We will be staying at the Field Studies Council Blencathra centre in Threlkeld near Keswick. The purpose of this trip is to carry out the necessary fieldwork and other preparations in order for pupils to be able to complete the controlled assessment component of their GCSE. It is therefore vital that your son/daughter attends.
The cost of this trip will be £185. This covers all transport, meals and accommodation, in addition to specialised tuition by Field Studies Council staff. Full details of the itinerary will be provided nearer the time.
Please send a first payment of £100 to school by Friday 4th March and the remaining £85 by Friday 29th April. Alternatively, you may wish to send the full amount now. Please make cheques payable to Red House School.

Head of Geography
