Where pupils are involved in a school trip involving additional costs such as museum visits, out of area transport etc, the cost for the activity will be outlined to parents in advance in order that a decision can be made by the parent whether or not they wish their child to participate. The costs of these trips will be accrued for the previous term plus any advance charges for items such as residential trips and added to the termly fee invoices.
Please be advised that where possible for residential trips we will ask for a non-returnable deposit to secure a place. The total cost of the trip, where possible will be divided over two terms. All residential trips are to be settled in advance.
