We have been thinking about the residential trip to Hilltop and what implications Covid-19 will have on that. We have been in touch with Hilltop to ask for their advice on whether it will be safe to go ahead with the trip. Currently the rules are that school trips can go ahead from September, but no overnight stays. This guidance may well change before November when we were planning to go to Hilltop.
Hilltop have said that they will contact us in September to discuss any changes that need to happen as they currently aren't open. It might be that we need to move the trip to later in the year, however this would come with an additional cost due to it being nicer weather and being closer to the peak season. We don't want to worry you about this, we just wanted to let you know. We will also consult with parents whether to go ahead with the trip if the increase in cost will be too much. In September we will find out more information from Hilltop and make new plans if we need to.
