Terms and Conditions for School Trips
When using ParentMail and if payment and consent are required, it is essential that both processes are completed simultaneously to secure a place.
If a completed consent form is not received by the school by the stated deadline, even if payment has been made to us, we regret we will be unable to allow your child to leave the school site.
By signing up to a residential and/or overseas visit for your child, you are agreeing to your child’s details being shared with a third party if and as required.
Medical and Insurance
If your child has a medical condition, which might invalidate our school journey insurance, please let us know as soon as possible and no later than a week before departure so that we can take the appropriate action and to ensure the correct insurance cover is in place.
Once tickets and/or places have been purchased by the school for any visit, we regret we are unable to make any refunds unless there is a waiting list and the place has been allocated to another child.
Please be aware that the initial deposit for any trip is always non-refundable once the trip has been secured and the deposit deadline reached. For overseas and residential trips subsequent payments to the initial deposit, will attract cancellation charges, usually on a sliding scale of days before departure.
These charges will be laid down by the tour company with whom we are purchasing the trip from and can be made available upon request.
Government and tour company advice suggests that passports should have at least 6 months remaining before their expiry date. They recommend that parents/carers check their children’s passports and to apply as soon as possible for a renewal if there is likely to be less than 6 months left on a passport, individual passports can be checked through these links for specific journeys.

Please note that it is parents’ responsibility to ensure that they submit a valid passport to the school, the school will not be able to make any refunds for payments made if a child is unable to travel should they have insufficient validity on their passport.
