In August 2015 Newman students will be travelling to Peru. This trip will be educational as well as a lot of fun for the students. Students will visit Lima and Cajamarca but will be mainly be based in Northern Peru in a town called Piura. During their time there they will be visiting local schools, local sites and experiencing life in Peru.

The approximate cost of the trip is £1500 which includes all travel, excursions, accommodation and food. The students will also require pocket money for drinks and snacks. To attempt to reduce the cost we will be fund raising in school and applying for sponsorship and grants from many agencies. We hope to reduce the cost before we travel and all savings will be passed back to parents.  If you would like to be involved in fund raising please contact Miss Postlethwaite at school. Your help will be gratefully received.


If you are interested in a place for your child then please could you contact Miss Postlethwaite. Places are not allocated on a first come first served basis, but are dependent on good attendance and behaviour.
