Information about JCA Residentials

In 2023, our annual school residential trip is to JCA Condover Hall.  This page will be updated regularly.

  • Our year 5 trip is Wednesday 26th to Friday 28th April.
  • A letter outlining the trip is below.
  • The trip will cost £200, which can be paid in instalments.
  • The second instalment of £65 was due on 1st March.
  • The final instalment of £65 is due on 1st April.
  • A kit list and information about medication is below. 
  • A flyer from JCA is below – please note we have not signed up for all of the activities.  Our own activity schedule will be posted here later.
  • Children will be allocated activity groups and dorm groups closer to the time.
  • Please do speak with us about any concerns or queries. 
  • We will have opportunity to visit the on-site gift shop.  There are a variety of small souvenirs for under £5 and children will need to look after their money themselves.  £5 is plenty – but please send no more than £10.
  • On the Wednesday, we leave school just after lunch.  We’ve had some eventful coach trips in the past and you may like to consider providing only a light packed lunch as this may be friendlier on their ‘travelling tummies!’  We will have a good hot meal in the evening.  Note, we don’t allow sweets to come out on the coach journey for similar reasons!
