School Trips

 

FOR COPIES OF SCHOOL TRIP LETTERS, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

 

At Patcham High School, we run a number of school trips over the year for our students.  To help the organisation process to run smoothly for both the parents and the school, we try to ensure that all trip letters are put on the school website and texts sent to inform you that letters are coming home with the student and/or have been put on the website.

To be prepared for any of the many trips abroad, I would advise that your child has a valid Passport (valid for 6 months from date of trip) and EHIC Card (you can apply online here).  All residential trips require a completed Medical Consent Form, which will be sent home for each trip, but are also available on the school website.

We try to keep the cost of the trips to a minimum, however we have to consider travel, entrance fees, accommodation and insurance before we set a cost for a trip.  We also try to give you as much notice as possible for trips and if we can give you the option of paying by instalments.  If you ever have a problem with getting payments to us for a trip please contact me to discuss as we can usually come to a suitable arrangement.

We have payment deadlines so that we can ensure cheques are cleared before we have to make payments to the companies that we have made bookings with.  The deadlines also help us see if the trip will be able to run.  Sometimes trips will not run if we do not have enough students, other times we may only have a limited number of places on a trip.  So ensuring the reply slip is returned as soon as possible will both improve your child’s chances of getting a place on the trip and ensuring the trip goes ahead.

MAKING PAYMENTS ONLINE

Letters went out  to all parents/carers with the information required to register with the service.  We have attached a help sheet below to help you get started, but you cannot start the process without your letter.

Register Your sQuid Account Help Sheet

You can only make payments for trips using the sQuid service.
