Dear Parent/Guardian

I have great pleasure in announcing that The English Martyrs Geography Department is offering a school trip to Weardale Adventure Centre departing Friday 14th June 2019 and returning to school on Sunday 16th June 2019.

The cost of the trip is £150 which includes travel cost, food, accommodation and equipment/instructor hire.

The trip was originally opened to Year 8 & 9 Students, however, we have now been given more places so we are opening up to Year 10 students as well. Year 8 & 9 students can still apply for the trip. Reservation of a place on this trip is dependent upon the continued good behaviour and attitude of your child. Due to the nature of the trip and safety regulations, only students who can be trusted to behave impeccably will be allowed to go.

We have around 30 extra places available and these places will be offered on a first come first served basis.  Students who are not initially selected will be listed as reserves.

We ask that all payments are paid through the Parentpay system as this reduces the risk for students bringing large amounts of cash into school. You can log into Parentpay at using your unique login and password. If you have any problems with Parentpay, please contact Miss Tait at for help making sure you include your child’s name, D.O.B and form group in the email

If you wish your child to be considered, please complete and submit the reply form at the bottom of this page by as soon as possible.  A non-refundable deposit of £50 will be required to be paid via the Parentpay on-line payment system by Friday 29th March.  Please do not send the deposit into school with your son/daughter.

When you submit the reply slip below the information will be sent to us, we will process and add your child to the trip in Parent Pay.  Please allow 24 hours for this to happen, longer if it is a weekend.

If your child is successful in gaining a place, but then has to withdraw, any money paid can only be returned if this is due to exceptional circumstances or his/her place is filled by another student.

Please see schools website for details of our full Charging & Remissions Policy.

Should you require any further information please contact me on 01429 273790 or email

Yours sincerely

Mr. L. Nicholson
House Leader
