Alton Castle Residential

Year 6 Residential to Alton Castle!


Our visit to Alton Castle 2021:

Wednesday 8th December until Friday 10th December 2021.


We will leave school on the Wednesday at 9.15am to arrive at the castle for 11am. Parents are welcome to come and wave the children off at that time.


Children will need to bring a packed lunch with them to eat when we arrive.  Children who have school dinners will have a packed lunch provided.


On the morning of the trip, children should come to school in their own clothes.  The children should arrive at school at 8.30am, bringing with them everything they need for the trip.   Children should arrive at the hall door through the car park and then we can store their bags in the cupboard while we get organised.


We will be leaving the castle on Friday 10th December at 11am and hope to return to school around 12.30pm - depending on traffic.  Please collect your children at 1pm as usual - we will contact parents if we are going to be delayed later than this.


Please ensure that the school office has all up-to-date telephone numbers so that we can contact parents if needed (E.g. if we were going to be late returning).


  • Please remember to pack plenty of layers, a water proof coat and wellies (if possible). 
  • Children can bring a maximum of £10 for the tuck shop - this needs to be in change and kept in a secure wallet/purse.
