Dear Parents,

GCSE geographers will be undertaking fieldwork at the Field Studies Council centre in Slapton between Friday 13th and Sunday 15th October 2017. Fieldwork is an essential part of the GCSE course and the work undertaken on the trip will contribute to the pupils’ overall GCSE grade. The pupils will have the support of the field centre staff, as well as Mrs Morrissey and Miss Jennings, whilst collecting data on coastal erosion and management. Meals and data collection equipment will be provided by the centre. Due to the popularity of this facility, we have to book over a year in advance.

The total cost of the trip, per pupil, will be £300. We are asking for a deposit of £75 by Friday 7th October 2016, in order that we can reserve the coach and accommodation. The remaining balance of £225 will be due by Wednesday 30th November, 2016. Please return the permission slip below, along with a cheque made payable to St John’s Senior School in an enclosed envelope with your child’s name on the front. Please note that payment should be made by way of cheque or cash only and not through the school’s bank account.

If you have any questions, please speak to the Geography Department on the piazza after school.

Kind regards,

Miss Jennings and Mrs. Morrissey
