Activities Week 2022

March 2022

Dear Parents/Guardians

Activities Week 11th – 15th July 2022

During the five days of Activities Week there are two Curriculum days and three Activity days, alongside residential trips in this country and abroad and Year 9 camp.

Curriculum days:  These days will be taking place in school and involve lots of different activities. More information will be to hand nearer the time.

The curriculum activities have been chosen by the departments concerned to provide a stimulating and entertaining focus.  

Activity days:  Wednesday, Thursday and Friday – Non uniform days

Students can choose to go out of school on three separate trips on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Students cannot go on the same trip twice. 

Monday and Tuesday are in school in school uniform. More information to follow much later. 

Click here to see Activities Week booklet, which details the exciting opportunities on offer during Activity days.  Students are allowed to choose three activities off site, or stay on site, whichever they choose, or a mixture of each.  Please ensure that reserve choices are clearly marked in both columns.

I trust that this information is clear and that you find the details contained within the booklet to be useful.  If you would like more information about an activity, please do not hesitate to contact Ms Lyn Massey whose task it will be to facilitate all the students’ choices (ljm@balcarras.gloucs.sch.uk).

Please take time to carefully read through the booklet and consider all aspects of choices, including suitability and costs.  An indication of choices is a commitment by both pupil and parent/guardian and therefore must be carefully considered.

Please ask your child to return their choices form, which must be signed by both pupil and parent/guardian, to their tutor by FRIDAY 1ST APRIL. Click here for the choices form.

Yours sincerely

Ms L Massey

Activities week coordinator
