Shopping afternoons

Optional extras

In addition to the organised excursions above, there are one or two optional shopping afternoons which are not included in the Course Fee. These are in Newbury or another town near the School. We think it safe for young people over 13 to shop in these towns unaccompanied by staff, if parents have indicated their agreement to this on the Application Form. This helps them achieve a measure of independence. Younger students can be accompanied by staff if parents or we so wish. There will be several staff in the town while our students are shopping. Travel is by private bus from the School with accompanying staff in the town.

The cost of transport (payable by students if they wish to go) is £10.
