School trips and events

Here at The Hythe School we offer a fantastic range of day visits and in-school visitors. These events help to enrich and enhance the children's learning whilst supporting the curriculum subjects.

To enable the trips and visits planned this year to go ahead we completely rely on the goodwill of, and encourage, parents to make a voluntary contribution.  The PTA usually make a large contribution each year towards the overall costs which enables us to keep the price per pupil to a minimum.  We are required, however, to point out that if we do not receive enough contributions towards the costs of these events then the activities will be cancelled. Therefore your support is invaluable in ensuring these can go ahead.

The Hythe School offers a secure, confidential online payment site at www.scopay.com. This is now our preferred method of payment.  You will need an Activation Code for initial set up, please contact the school office or email l.adams@hythe.surrey.sch.uk for details.  Please note that we are now a 'cashless' school.                           

Volunteer Helpers

To comply with the correct adult to child ratio on school visits we occasionally require extra adult assistance. Please contact Mrs Adams, School Finance Assistant via the School Office if you are able to help and she will advise parents when extra help is needed with any trip.

Any parents / carers who wish to help on a school visit must complete an online DBS application. Please note that DBS applications are processed in the strictest confidence at no cost to our volunteers.

If you are interested in volunteering to help us with any events or trips please click here to see the DBS application guidance.
