You may already be aware of the subsidy arrangements for BMBC schools’ residential visits to the Kingswood Peak Venture Centre near Penistone (formerly Scout Dike Centre).
Currently there is a £22 per pupil per night subsidy available from Kingswood for residential visits of up to four nights (for more detailed information: returning schools contact Bonny Leftwich on 01603 309393, new schools contact Karen Angus on 01246 863432).
Kingswood have now offered to extend this subsidy arrangement to their new Dearne Valley Centre (the former Earth Centre near Doncaster) for BMBC secondary schools.
The new centre is due to open in March this year and this offer provides the opportunity to undertake an activity-based residential at another site within a short travelling distance from Barnsley. Additional information about the new centre at Dearne Valley is available here.
There is also a Preview Week being held during the week commencing 27th Feburary to view the new site and facilities.
For more information about the new Dearne Valley Centre, the Preview Week or this extended subsidy offer, please contact Alicia Dickinson at Kingswood on e: firstname.lastname@example.org t: 01246 557972.
