    The cost for Geek Week is £45 per pupil (including deposit) with the deadline being the 2nd March. This needs to be paid so all activities can be booked and sorted in plenty of time. Thanks all
  • Push Yourself to the Limits

    I can confirm that the final cost of the ‘Push yourself to the limits’ Week is £150. The deadline for payment is 22nd March 2018. This does not need to be paid in full but can be paid in instalments via Wisepay.

Discovery Week

Discovery Week is for Years 7-9 and will take place between Monday 16th July - Friday 20th July 2018

Here at Barr Beacon we feel passionately that pupils learn life skills, as well as loving their subjects. Discovery Week allows them to do all of this – whilst having a lot of fun. Below you will find details of a wide range of overseas trips, events and exciting activities. There really is something for everyone.

If you are the parent/carer of a Year 8 and 9 pupil you might have known this as Activities Week, but this is quite different because of the educational elements, as you will see from the descriptions.

Please read all the details carefully, including deadlines for deposits, and when you have made your choices pay the required deposits on Wisepay to confirm your child’s place. If the trip does not require payment please still book your place on Wisepay. It works on a first come first served basis so get deposits in early to avoid having to pick a backup choice.

*Important to note* – Whilst every effort has been made to cost activities for the week prices at this stage are approximates and maybe subject to slight changes.

Thank you for your continued support.
