French Trip 2016
I am writing to inform you of a proposed MFL/Humanities trip to Northern France, which will take place next year, from 17th – 21st March 2016. We will travel by coach and ferry, stay three nights in a hotel in Le Touquet and one night in Paris.
The trip is open to Y10 pupils who are studying French, Geography or History. Each day of the trip will be focussed on a different area of the curriculum, dedicated to a particular subject. We will spend a History day visiting the World War 1 Museums and Battlefields around Ypres, a French day practising language skills in Le Touquet and a Geography day looking at the tourism infra-structure of a major theme park (Disneyland Paris).
The cost of the trip will be £375. This will include travel to and from school, Half Board accommodation, all excursions and entrance fees, insurance and Study Packs. It does not include spending money. This amount need not be paid in one go, but by instalments, if you prefer. A deposit of £100 will be required by Friday 16th October. The remaining monies must be paid by Friday 15th January 2016.
Pupils will need a passport (application forms can be obtained online at https://www.britishpassportsuk.co.uk/british-passport-application-form.html) as well as an EHIC card, in case of medical emergencies. This is available free of charge from http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/Healthcareabroad/EHIC/Pages/about-the-ehic.aspx.
If your son/daughter wishes to be included on this trip, please complete and return the attached consent slip, together with the non-returnable deposit of £100 to me, Mrs K. Whiffen, by Friday 16th October. Any cheques should be made payable to UTC Bolton. Once your child has been accepted on the trip, we will issue a Payment card, which should be signed each time a further payment is made. However, places are limited, so if the number of students expressing an interest exceeds the number of places available, a ballot will be drawn, and a reserve list drawn up. Should your child not receive a place on the trip, all monies paid will of course be returned to you in full.
I would like to remind you that students on this trip will be representing UTC Bolton, and should therefore behave in an appropriate way at all times. In accordance with school rules and regulations I reserve the right to withdraw your child from taking part in the trip as a result of behaviour issues in school.
