This year we have booked the Emmaus Centre at Wydale on the outskirts of Scarborough for our annual holiday, from Monday 3rd to Saturday 8th April 2017 (first week of the school Easter holidays). The centre is self-catering and is situated in the grounds of a large country house operated as a hotel by the Church of England. We will have exclusive use of the centre and its facilities which include a large TV and games room, and a floodlit outdoor multi-court.
As previously this will be a joint holiday with both the Junior Section and Company Section holidaying together, however the sections will be accommodated within separate areas of the centre and will operate largely separate programmes of activities; coming together mainly for meals.
Activities for the duration of our stay have yet to be confirmed, but we plan to use the centre as a base to visit attractions in the local area such as Scarborough, a theme park, paintball and go-karting; as well as activities such as swimming, bowling and a cinema trip.
If you wish your son to attend the holiday, a deposit of £25 must be paid by the below dates:
- Junior Section – Monday 30th January, 2017
- Company Section – Wednesday 1st February, 2017
Boys in each section have been issued letters which provide details specific to their section. Boys will be issued with a payment card and the balance of the holiday can be paid up week by week if you wish. The full balance is due no later than Monday 20th March, 2017 for Junior Section and Wednesday 22nd March, 2017 for Company Section.
Please note that any cancellations after 1st March will be subject to payment in full.
