Y10 French/History Trip: Monday, 28th March

22nd March 2016

Following the tragic events in Brussels, the SPTA have been in close consultation with the OEP (Outdoor Education Advisory Panel) regarding planned visits that are overseas or to a major UK based city or venue, and the potential risks posed by these types of visits.

Current FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) advice is for all schools to continue with their planned visits to France and consequently travel and insurance companies will not be prepared to offer refunds should an academy cancel a planned visit.

We will continue to monitor the FCO website for advice about overseas travel and we will also continue to be in close contact with travel operators.

Our planned trips to New York and France will continue with additional measures put in place. Please be assured that the safety of our students is of paramount importance to us.

Undoubtedly, the events of yesterday may make some parents and students apprehensive and therefore want to cancel their places on these trips however we should make you aware that no money will be refunded in these scenarios. Should you have any questions or concerns do please contact the academy.
