News & Events

Hilltop Update Wednesday

Dear Parents,

Another exciting day: more mountain biking, 'Vertical Challenge', team games and 'Big Zipper' as well as climbing, abseiling and 'The Tree Top Trail'. The children are tiring slightly but every one of them we ask insists they are having a great time. They are eating and sleeping well and, in certain cases, conquering their fear of heights (as are the teachers...) There are 59 further images in our gallery and no doubt plenty more will be made available upon our return. This is our final update; see you all at The Memorial Hall sometime tomorrow afternoon.

Regards,

The Hilltop Team

 

Hilltop Update Tuesday

Dear Parents,

An action-packed day with mountain biking, assault course, orienteering, 'The Vertical Challenge', team games, 'The Big Zipper', swimming and two birthdays! Mrs Allen made it most of the way up The Vertical Challenge (see photographic evidence), Mr Parry and Mr McMahon braved the Big Zipper and Mrs Henley managed to avoid both (her turn at the zip wire comes tomorrow...) Lunch was jacket potato with cheese and beans, dinner was pasta and meatballs with sponge pudding, and both Ben and Isabella (our birthday duo) were generous enough to share their birthday cakes. It was also good to finally welcome Holly this evening. Currently, the children are enjoying 'Mad Hatters' - a giant game of It among the trees. A selection of images have been added to the gallery. More to follow tomorrow.

Regards,

The Hilltop Team

 

Hilltop Update Monday

Dear Year 6 Parents,

The children have arrived safely, enjoyed the first round of activities and enjoyed their first meal at the centre (burger and chips/salad with chocolate pudding and custard). Currently they are enjoying an evening activity outside on the field. We have added a dozen images so far and will add more each evening. You may view these by visiting the Galleries page under the News tab, or by clicking here.

Tax Free Childcare Scheme

Dear Parents

The Government have recently issued details about the new tax free childcare scheme.  This will increase any monies paid into a dedicated account by 20p for every 80p paid in up to a total of £2,000.  This may be of interest to parents who wish to take advantage of after school /holiday care schemes.
