BUDE UPDATE - update 22nd June

Cornwall Refunds are being issued to families throughout last week and this week. They are taking longer than anticipated to reach you, this is due to the Banks/Paypal needing 3-5 working days. Rest assured all refunds will be issued and are currently being processed. Thanks so much for the patience at this time. Please get in touch with krainbow@garstangcommunityacademy.com if you have any concerns or issues.



BUDE UPDATE - update 17th June

Cornwall Refunds are due to be issued to families this week. Refunds always go back to the original method of payment, if your card has expired our Finance team will contact you for your new bank details. Please get in touch with krainbow@garstangcommunityacademy.com if you have any concerns or issues.



Bude Update - 11th May 2020

In light of the Government announcement yesterday, I can confirm that the Year 7 Cornwall trip scheduled for July, has been cancelled.

Our Finance team are working closely with Adventure International and our Insurance Company to issue refunds - please bear with us during this unprecedented time.  I will keep you updated with details of when refunds will be issued to families, as soon as I have them.


If you  have any questions please contact krainbow@garstangcommunityacademy.com


Many thanks for your patience. 

Miss Rainbow, Year 7 Progress Leader



Year 7 Bude - 12th to 17th July 2020


Dear Parent/Carer


You will no doubt be aware of the constantly developing Covid-19 situation.  I spent the majority of Monday in communication with Adventure International and our Insurance Company RPA, trying to seek some definitive information regarding our organised travel to Bude.

Like me, you will feel incredibly frustrated with the situation but the school and I can only act upon the advice given, We have a number of options available to us but none we can take at the moment. 

If any further guidance comes from either Adv‚Äčenture International or the government, rest assured I’ll be in contact with updates. If you would like to contact me please e-mail krainbow@garstangcommunityacademy.com

Yours sincerely,

Miss Rainbow
Year 7 Progress Leader and Head of Girls PE
