LI: To use a variety of techniques to build suspense


Breathing heavily, my heart pounded - one false move and all could be lost. As I began to ascend the crumbling, mossy surface of what seemed like a high, impenetrable wall of rock, I began to smell the stale air and my head ached. The sky, a vibrant shade of azure blue, stood there, staring down at me, like a silent assassin, waiting for me to plummet to my fate.

I hesitated. I would have to muster all of my strength for the next kick; the closest ledge was at least two feet above me. Wedging my fingertips into the recesses of the rough, crumbling mountain face, I looked below – a vast, dense carpet of conifers lay 4000 feet below me. Would I make it?

Once more, I looked up to find that not only had I nearly reached the summit, but that a thick, grey carpet of clouds was forming above my head. I tried to call; nothing came out. Sweating profusely, I took three deep, heavy breaths, my conscience reassured me, and I proceeded with my climb, where I gripped the last crevice with ease, pushing myself up to the peak.

Year 6 residential 2023


BCP have just informed us that the secondary transfer day is now the 7th July! As a result we are having to change the dates of the Year 6 residential.


The booking is now for the weekend of the 23rd, 24th and 25th June and the cost of the trip including food, all activities and coach travel will be £200 per child. The cost of the coach has unfortunately gone up slightly (due to rising costs) and the children will need to bring their own sleeping bag or duvet and pillow; we actually found this worked well this year.  


The deposit is now overdue for this residential and we ask that if you are intending for your child to attend, you pay the deposit of £50 to secure your place by 7.9.22 (Wednesday)  


The children will leave school on the Friday morning and return to school for approximately 7.30pm on Sunday 9th July. We did leave at 9.15am this year but found that as it was so hot during the day, it was very difficult to keep the children occupied outside for the long period before check in. Leaving later will also enable us to ensure that the children have everything they need for the trip, rather than a last minute panic and they wont need to carry lunches around with them. Unfortunately this means that you won't necessarily 'see' the children off, however for those of you who are able, the coaches will leave site at 1pm and you are welcome to wave them off. More details will follow next year!


Please remember that the payments will be payable over 4 instalments of £50 (deadlines July 29th 2022, October 28th 2022, February 24th 2023, April 28th 2023), although you are welcome to pay the full amount if you are able. This plan will give you almost a year to enable you to spread the cost. 


I will be sending a lot more information through to you in the new academic year and will almost definitely be running a PGL information session for parents and carers in the autumn term. If you have any questions at this time, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Thank you
