Dear Parents

I am organising an arts residential for year 10 and 11 art students to Seahouses in Northumberland. We will stay in the Seahouses Hostel for the weekend and have sole use of the hostel and its facilities. We will leave from school on the afternoon of Friday, 9th September and will return on Sunday 11th September at approx 3.30pm. Pupils will have the opportunity to partake in either photography or art and design projects based on seashore depending on their area of study.

The trip includes two nights’ accommodation, transport, food, and all art materials.

If you wish your son/daughter to attend this residential weekend please can you either send a cheque for £90 made payable to Red House School or alternatively pay direct to the school bank, using the following information:

  • Sort Code – 30-98-13
  • Account Number – 01776186
  • Bank – Lloyds Bank plc

If you choose to pay direct please ensure that you use an easily identifiable reference code, eg art trip and your childs name. It would also be helpful if you could put the reference you use on the reply slip below.

A Parental Consent & Medical form is attached. I would be grateful if it could be completed and return with the slip below. The trip will be subject to the conditions as set out in the Parent Contract, and will be covered by the school’s insurance policy. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leader. A qualified first aider will be accompanying the trip. Personal items such as mobile phones, personal stereos, iPods or cameras are not allowed. The school cannot be held responsible for the care of these items and the school’s insurance will not cover them. One of the aims of the trip is to encourage a sense of independence. From past experience pupils who continually try to contact home are more likely to feel homesick. However, you can rest assured that if there is a problem we would contact you if we thought it necessary. We endeavour to take photographs on as many school trips as possible, please visit our website, facebook and twitter pages to view a selection of photographs.
Yours faithfully

Mrs C Fraser

Head of Art
