Ski Trips

Update 29th June 2021

Norway Ski trip 2022

Should travel restrictions be lifted then there will be a slight change to our itinerary. Instead of using Gatwick we shall be transiting through Heathrow using Widerøe Air. This is advantageous because LHR is closer than LGW and the flight departures are not as early, meaning that we do not have to leave school in the very early hours!

Everyone who has applied will be able to go during February half-term. There is no Easter option.

There will be two groups with the flight times below. Departure & return times to Balcarras will be confirmed later.

  • Group 1: (current Years 7 to 9*) … depart 13:10 Saturday 19th … return 18:20 Friday 25th
  • Group 2: (current Years 9* to 12) … depart 10:35 Sunday 20th … return 12:05 Saturday 26th

*Year 9 pupils will be split between the 2 groups according to experience.

The cost per pupil remains £1295. Payment via Scopay has been re-activated.

Please be aware that if the trip goes ahead then full payment must be made by December.

The amount paid should be at least £595 by the end of July.

A deposit of £50 per person (from the deposit of £175 already paid) needs to be forwarded to the airline by September. This is currently non-refundable if the trip does not go ahead.

Should any parent be unwilling to risk losing £50 (in the event of a cancelled trip) then any payments made to date will be refunded.  Please complete this 'Forms' questionnaire as soon as possible.

Kind Regards
