Year 7 Trip to Stratford upon Avon

25 Feb 2019

25 February 2019


Dear Parents and Carers

This year Ibstock Community College are organising a trip to Stratford upon Avon which is to take place on Friday 3rd May 2019.

The trip is open to all students in Year 7 and offers an excellent opportunity for students to gain an insight into Shakespearean life. 

During the day, students will potentially have the chance to:

  • Explore the creative choices of a Shakespeare play by taking part in a drama workshop which is led by a RSC Education Associate Practitioner.
  • Gain an appreciation of what goes on behind-the-scenes with a backstage tour at the RSC theatre where there is the opportunity to get up close to the stage, look at props and costumes.
  • Take an interactive, magical journey through 100 years of theatre-making at the RSC.

Travel will be by coach from Ibstock Community College.  We anticipate leaving school around 8.30am and returning at approximately 5pm.  Timings for the day will be confirmed once we have a schedule for the activities.

We expect all participating students to have shown, and to continue to show, a positive attitude to their school work and good attendance. We reserve the right to refuse a place to any child who does not meet this important criteria. Similarly, the place may be withdrawn if behaviour in school raises doubt about the students’ ability to conduct themselves safely and responsibly.

The approximate cost of the trip is £29.50 which must be paid via Parent Pay.  Initially, if you would like your son/daughter to take part in this visit please complete the slip below and return to Mrs Pennington by Thursday 21st March at the latest. 

When the list of students has been finalised confirmation letters will be sent out to parents / carers.  This letter will also confirm the final price of the trip, the cost will need to be paid in full via Parent Pay.

Should the trip be over-subscribed, we will write to parents / carers with an explanation of the selection criteria, which will be applied consistently and fairly to all interested students.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
