26.04.2019 Y5 & Y6 Alton Towers Letter

April 2019


Dear Parents and Carers


Alton Towers Trip – Price Reduction


Due to an administrative error at Alton Towers, we have been inadvertently charged a higher rate for our upcoming trip. As a result, the correct rate of admission is £8.00 (not the £12.50 that we were originally advised of) so a reduction of £4.50 per child.  The cost of transport remains the same at £7.40.


The revised cost of the trip is therefore £15.40.  As before, if your child has a Merlin card you will just need to pay for the £7.40 for the cost of the transport.


We are aware a number of parents have already paid the initial price of £19.90.  We will therefore be arranging to refund you the full amount you have paid via sQuid in the next day or so.  Once you have received this refund, please log back into sQuid and pay the revised amount.  We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause you.  If you have already returned the permission tear off slip, you do not need to return the below one as well.


If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the school.


Kind regards

The year 5/6 team
