School Trips


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 invitations are put on the school website (unless they are invitation only) and we try to send texts to inform you that the invitations  are coming home by email.

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 that we have payment in time to pay the trip providers.  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.


All payments to the school are made using the online payment system SQUID.
