November 2021 update: We are starting to be able to arrange extra-curricular visits again but all bookings will depend on Covid restrictions and regulations current at the time of booking and the trip taking place.
We have issued an overview of residential trips we are hoping to offer over the next two years, subject to government covid restrictions.
Curricular Educational Visits
To be updated in due course.
Current Synopsis of School Journey / Travel Cover
The payment schedule for all residential trips will consist of a deposit and a maximum of two further payment deadlines. This is to minimise the substantial administration costs and time of collecting, chasing and processing payments. You can, of course, pay a higher amount than shown on the schedule in order to clear the balance sooner should you wish. We are also more than happy to accept more frequent payments of lesser amounts, as long as the threshold amounts and dates are met. It is essential these payment deadlines are met as interim payments have to be made to the tour operator.
In order to help meet the school’s costs in organising large extra-curricular trips, there is a 1% school admin charge. This money will go towards the costs of staff time in processing payments and administering the off-site activities approval process.
The 1% charge will not apply to educational visits in school time, only to extra-curricular activities.
