We will be staying at the Wheatlands Lodge Hotel in York. We will be served breakfast, lunch and evening meal and the children will sleep in rooms of 4-6. They will only need to bring a towel with them for showers.
Does my child need to bring money?
No, there will be no time to spend in gift shops, all other things will be provided for.
Who will my child share a room with?
We will look very closely at friendship groups and make sure each child is sharing with their friends.
Can my child bring any food to eat in their room?
No, school will provide any food and snacks so that the children all get a good night's sleep.
What if my child doesn't like the hotel food?
We will be served a 3-course meal each evening and the food served always hearty and tasty such as fish and chips and roast dinners. There will always be something for them to eat. They can choose from cereal and cooked breakfasts in the morning.
What if my child needs medication when they are away?
Please give the medication to staff on the morning that we leave in a bag with clear instructions. We will ensure that your child gets their medication when they need it.
What if my child gets travel sickness?
Please give travel sickness pills to your child before we leave. Pass on tablets to staff and we will make sure they take them before we return to school.
Can my child bring an electrical device?
No, we won't have time to use them as our days are full. They can also be easily lost or broken. If there is a problem, we will contact school who will be in touch with you.
