Please discuss with your groups and email Natalie.Berry@patesgs.org with at least two possible choices if you can.

Take care when choosing your group and booking the dates for your expeditions as you must ensure that you will be available for the entire length of the trip. Requests for permission to join late or leave early will not be approved except in extremely rare and unforeseen circumstances (e.g.a funeral but not a family wedding or birthday celebration).
Please note: You will not proceed onto your assessment unless you are deemed safe to do so by the OED Staff.
Once your group has registered a payment request will be put on school gateway. This must be paid no later than two weeks before the event.
