Children may like to bring pocket money but they won’t need very much at all (there are no shops!!) There is a small kiosk at the Youth Hostel and souvenir shop at the castle. This is entirely the child’s responsibility and I recommend it is kept in a small purse or wallet.

This is not a beach holiday – although we will be having fun on the beach, there is a lot of walking and scrambling over rocks and the coastal path, which is quite hilly in places, to negotiate. Appropriate footwear and clothing is essential.

Donations of cakes, packets of biscuits to share out with everyone would be most welcome.

Please complete the form with contact details and medical and dietary requirements.
We are taking Calpol and Piriton.
Any medication including inhalers, should be given to a member of staff before departure on the Tuesday morning for safe keeping.
Travel sickness tablets should be taken before school on Tuesday and return journey tablets passed to staff.
