WW1 Battlefields trip 17-19 JUNE 2019

World War One I Year Battlefields Trip 2019

Dear Parent/Carer

We are planning a visit to the battlefields of Belgium and northern France from the 20thJune to 22nd June 2019. The visit will link in with our GCSE unit on Surgery and Medical Treatment in the First World War.

We will leave College on Thursday 20th June at 8.00am and will be returning to College on Saturday 22nd June in the early evening. Travel will be by English coach and ferry; the coach and driver will accompany us throughout the visit. The cost will be £330, although this may change depending on how many students come on the trip.

It will include:

  • Executive coach with seat belts, W.C., air conditioning, DVD player
  • Return channel crossings by P&O Ferry - NOT including any meal.
  • Full board accommodation including packed lunches (excludes packed lunch on first day and evening meal on last day)
  • Fully comprehensive insurance cover
  • A Royal British Legion Guide
  • Road Tolls
  • One Museum entrance fee per day where applicable
  • Poppy wreath with school's logo as centrepiece

It should be mentioned at the outset that a lot of walking will be expected from the students (and staff!) and students should consider this when deciding whether to apply for a place on this trip.

Please return the enclosed consent form, a photocopy of your son/daughter’s passport (please contact us if you are currently renewing) and a deposit of £50 by 30th September 2018. Payment will only be accepted via the School Gateway, (please contact the office if you have any problems accessing this). Your deposit will remain refundable until we have the minimum number of students required to secure the price quoted; once the trip has been booked all payments will be non-refundable. Once your child’s place is confirmed on the trip you will receive notification via email. If more students apply than there are places available, then places will be awarded by process of a lottery.

We propose to collect payment of the remaining balance in two instalments via the School Gateway between now and November 2018. The schedule for each non-refundable payment will be as follows:

£140 – 31st October

£140 – 30th November

Yours faithfully
