Coronavirus update for DoE activities

Re: Coronavirus update for DoE activities
Following recent Government guidance, the decision has been made to suspend all school trips, both residential and day trips. Unfortunately this will mean that planned DoE activities will not be able to go ahead, namely the Bronze Navigation Day (22nd March), the Bronze Practice Expedition (25th to 26th April), the Silver Navigation Day (29th March) and the Gold Practice Expedition (6th to 9th April).
With regard to any other expeditions, planned for later in the year, we will contact you once a final decision has been made.
I appreciate that students will be disappointed and very much hope you will understand this is a result of exceptional circumstances.
We will be working with our insurers to understand the financial position for parents, and will continue to share information as it becomes available.
