NPA – Year 9 & 10

Dear Parents/Carer                                                           5th June 2018

I am delighted to offer your son /daughter the opportunity to participate to a trip to Cambridge to visit Anglia Ruskin University. The trip will comprise a short tour of the University and then will also include a short talk by University staff to allow students to understand the opportunities available for them if they obtain a degree. The rest of the afternoon will be spent exploring the city of Cambridge.

The coach will depart NPA at 8.30 am on Tuesday the 26th June and depart Cambridge at 3pm. Estimated time of arrival to NPA school is 4.30 pm. We advise students to bring a pack lunch or money for lunch. School uniform will not be required for this visit but we do require students to dress appropriately given that the students will be visiting a university and representing their school.

The cost of the trip will be 15 pounds but current legislation permits us to ask only for voluntary payment, no pupil will be discriminated against on the grounds of inability to pay, but if you are unable to make this voluntary payment then you should write, in confidence, to the Principal, Mr S Howard to request financial assistance.  However, this trip is an extracurricular activity not in school hours, therefore financial assistance will only be considered by the Principal in extenuating circumstances.  If sufficient money is not raised by voluntary contributions, then the visit will have to be cancelled.

If you wish your son daughter /son to participate to the trip please sign and return the permission slip to the finance office along with payment by Friday, the 8th June. Alternatively, you can respond by e-mail authorizing this trip and pay via our parent-pay system.

As students will be representing the school, students who have displayed poor behaviour in MFL lessons will not be offered a place on the trip.  In addition, this trip is available to all Year 9’s and all Year 10 non-geography students due to the fact that there is already a Year 10 geography trip taking place on this day.

Kindest Regards

Mrs Lorenzini

(MFL teacher)


I give permission for my son /daughter (include name ) ……        to take part in the trip to Anglia Ruskin University on the 26th June
