Once again we have negotiated a deal with Van Hage so that all of our students can enjoy a subsidised skating session for only £8.00 on Tuesday 3rd December 2019.

Each year group has been allocated a time slot and will travel to and from Van Hage by coaches or by school minibuses.

  • Session 1: 11.00am – 12.00pm (Year Seven)
  • Session 2: 12.00pm – 1.00pm (Year Eight)
  • Session 3: 1.00pm – 2.00pm (Year Nine)
  • Session 4: 2.00pm – 3.00pm (Year Ten)
  • Session 5: 3.00pm – 4.00pm (Year Eleven & Sixth Form)

Break and lunch arrangements will be modified accordingly and we have made the day a non-uniform day to make it easier for the students to skate. When your child isn’t skating or travelling, normal lessons will take place. Due to the complexity of organising such an activity day, students who cannot or do not wish to participate will be given appropriate work to do and will be supervised at Chauncy whilst their year group attends the session.

Van Hage will be making these sessions exclusive to Chauncy School. Therefore, we will need to confirm numbers quickly to secure our booking. The trip will be made available exclusively on WisePay at 4.00pm on Friday 18th October 2019 and we ask that you complete a payment of £8.00 via WisePay no later than Monday 11th November 2019.

Instructions on using Wisepay can be found on our school website here:

Please direct any questions about Wisepay to Jackie Grosch via or telephone 01920 411200.

If your child is entitled to either Free School Meals or Pupil Premium we have already paid for their place on this trip. Please e-mail Jackie Grosch via and let us know if your child does not wish to participate in this activity by Monday 11th November 2019.

Each skating session is restricted to 210 skaters so places on this trip will be available on a first come, first served basis. We will operate a reserve list if the trip becomes fully booked.

If you have any general questions about the trip please e-mail me at or telephone 01920 411200.

Yours faithfully,

Mr S Walton (Deputy Headteacher)
