If you are interested in your child taking part, please complete the form below when it goes live on Wednesday 6 March 2024 at 6:00pm. The form will close on Monday 11 March 2024. The first 44 students will be notified and will then be required to pay a deposit of £150 within 48 hours. If the deposit is not received within this time, your child will lose their space and it will be offered to the next person on the waiting list. A payment schedule will be set up once deposits have been received so that thumbnail_PHOTO-2023-02-14-07-45-57students can pay in instalments over the course of the year.

We plan to run this trip every 2 years, so if you are not successfully in getting a place this time, you can try again for 2027.

Students who have previously taken part in the Ski Trip have found it to be a most rewarding experience. They have reported that they have increased confidence due to learning a new skill, experiencing a different culture and being part of a team. The students who go on the ski trip will be representing our school. It is therefore imperative that their behaviour is exceptional. In the event of serious incidents occurring whilst we are away, the school will reserve the right to send students home at the expense of parents/carers.

Please note that your child’s place on the ski trip is subject to their continued good behaviour throughout the school year.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact our trips coordinator at

Yours faithfully,

Glenn Wright, Head of Post-16 & Ski Trip Leader
