Dear Parents/Carers


We have a block booking for Classes R, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 to visit The Hawthorne Theatre, Welwyn Garden City to see a performance of the pantomime, Dick Whittington, on Thursday 15th December.  The cost of this visit is £11.50 per child to cover the cost of the coach and the theatre.

We will be leaving school at approximately 12.45 pm as the performance starts at 1.30 p.m. The children will have lunch before they leave and school will finish at approximately 4.30 p.m.  I would be grateful if the money could be paid by Monday, 5th December.

You can pay this via our School Comms, click the link on The Ryde School website.  Alternatively you can pay via cash/cheque (cheques made payable to The Ryde School).  If you are paying by cheque, only one cheque per family is required, but we do need to have a permission slip for each child.  If your child is unable to participate in this visit I need to know immediately as we need to confirm the ticket numbers.  If there are any problems, please let me know.

For pupils that are in receipt of Free School Meals, 50% of the cost will now be met by the Government’s Pupil Premium Funding.

Yours sincerely

Mrs S Thompson
