Plas Pencelli 2021

With the current restrictions on movement and contact it has been difficult to communicate our plans for a residential visit for our current Year 5 children, during their time in Year 6.  The letter below provides information about our proposed trip to Plas Pencelli Residential Centre next March.  Whilst we are unsure at present if the trip will be possible, we are hoping that by March 2021 we will have found ways to enable a trip such as this to take place.  As a result we would like to know the level of interest in a residential visit next year.  Please click the link below to get more information and then reply.  Many thanks
