We are trialing a new way to provide parents with information, as we understand that the logistics of coming to the school campus during the day, or early evening, can be inconvenient for many parents, particularly if you have children in several year groups.
Please follow this link to view a video podcast from myself, outlining the goals of the 2016/17 Partnership Projects.
Please follow this link to an introduction to the vision of Appleseed Expeditions, our student travel partner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtS5tWyaquU
The following links are short introductions to each Project Week, also attached to this email is the proposed itinerary for each year group.

Year 10 Costa Rica
Year 11 New Orleans
Following on from this, on Monday 18th April, from 8.30am, we will welcome into school Joe Moore, CEO of Appleseed Expeditions, our student travel partner, for a Q&A session with parents who may have further questions about the activities and service partnerships for (next year’s year groups) Years 7, 8 and 9 between 8.30am and 9.30am. We will then welcome parents of students in Years 10 and 11 from 9.30am-10.30am.
Please follow this link to submit any questions that you may have, we will follow up distribute FAQs to all parents : https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VXTRQYJ
Shortly after this, enrolment will open for each Project Week, you will receive all of the details regarding the enrolment process and payment options. During the Autumn Term 1, each Head of Year will hold a trip information meeting, where more specific information will be provided, such as flight and accommodation details, packing lists etc.
