Estimated time of arrival is 5.30pm. The coach is nearly at the M25. Once we know what the traffic is like then we will know more.
Parents wishing to drive may come to the Barking Road Vehicle entrance and park in the car park behind the school. Main reception closes at 5.30pm so if you arrive after this time you may have to wait until a member of the site team comes.

They were up early for one more activity before departure.
Tuesday 3rd July 2018
After a lovely meal, a sing song around the camp fire and a good night's sleep the children had a jam packed day: climbing Jacob's Ladder; swinging on the Giant Swing; Quad Biking and then cooling on the lake for Dragon Racing.
There have been some nerves but everyone has given it a good go and persevered. Here are a few photos to keep you going. They are now off to get showered ready for the disco tonight.

The children arrived safe and well in the Isle of Wight. They got to the ferry port in time to catch the 9.30am ferry much to the relief of everyone! All your efforts in getting up extra early were rewarded thank you.
They enjoyed their lunch on the beach in the beautiful sunshine and relaxed while the rest of us continued working hard in our hot classrooms.
Everyone unpacked and settled into their dormitories and went off to their first activity which was either the Challenge Course, Tunnel Trail, Giant Swing or Jacob's Ladder.
At the time of writing this update they were just getting out of their safety harness' and going to get ready for dinner at 6pm which is when I will start getting photos! As soon as I have them I will upload them so that you can see what your child has been up to.
