Robinwood Residential Trip

19 October 2021 (by crossgates123)

Residential Visit to Dobroyd Castle (Current Year 5 Children)

Dear Parents/ Carers,                                                                         


The residential for your child has been booked at Dobroyd Castle, Robinwood Activity Centre in Todmorden.

             Friday, 9th September – Sunday, 11th September 2022

We are going at the beginning of year six because the children go into year six from three different classes and the big focus is around team building and communication.

It really is a fantastic, exciting and challenging experience for the children as there are many activities at Robinwood that the children would never normally experience. This will be our third visit to Dobroyd Castle; our previous visits have been fabulous.

The activities include: Canoeing, Raft Building, Team Challenge, Giant Swing, Giant Zip Wire, Trapeze, Crate Challenge, Piranha Pool, Quest, Archery, Night Line, Caving, Climbing, Dungeon of Doom and the Obstacle Course.  We will be holding an information evening closer to the time.

If you wish your child to attend the Robinwood residential please complete the consent form online and you can pay in installments online too.

The total cost of the visit is £230 

If your child receives free school meals, or has in the past whilst at Crossgates, the trip has been subsidised with Pupil Premium money and the cost will be £115.

This may seem like a lot of money, but it includes transport, all meals, accommodation, activities and equipment. The children just need to bring clothes. If you wish to discuss this with me, please contact school.
