Rock climbing

Dear Parent/Carer,

Following your son’s request for Outdoor Education this year, I am pleased to invite him onto a rock climbing session, which will take place this academic year.

Please see your son’s allocated date on the text message you received this link on.

There will be an opportunity to visit the indoor rock-climbing centre at the Creation Climbing Wall in Moseley. Students will learn the basics of how to tie in and belay fellow climbers, master climbing techniques on different routes and work towards the KNBS Climbing Awards. 

Students should meet me by the Outdoor Education Room at 9.50am after period 1. The Outdoor Education room is D 1.6, by the side of the dining room. We will return to school at 3pm. Students should come to school in uniform. Students will be transported in the school mini bus.

Students will need to bring a packed lunch and a large drink.

Students will be provided with all safety gear and full instruction. Please remember to wear a tight fitting pair of trainers and bring warm comfortable clothes for climbing in but NO TIGHT JEANS. It can be cold inside at times.

Students need to arrive at school in full uniform, and will be able to get changed when we arrive.

In order for your son to take part in this activity, we will need the online medical consent form (link below) submitted before his allocated date.

To maintain this wonderful opportunity for our students, it is essential we have contributions from families. A contribution of £10 per student (£5 for students in receipt of pupil premium funding) goes towards equipment hires costs, maintenance of equipment and repairs for all activities.  

Contributions are to be made via ParentPay to the ‘Outdoor Adventure Programme - Climbing’ payment item.  

If your son is unable to take this opportunity, then please let me know so we can reallocate the space.

Thanks for your support.                                              

Mr B Julian
