Dear Parents/Carers


Year 4 trip to the Opel Coast, France in June 2018


As you may be aware, I would like to take a group of children to France as an enrichment experience. There has not been enough interest in the option I proposed before the summer holiday; however, I have not cancelled the trip yet.


I have asked for the price of a one night trip as this was the duration of the trip for the children who went last year (the current Year 5s). I have looked into this and the costings are as follows:


Departing: 13 June 2018 Returning: 14 June 2018

Cost for 20 children: £216.50 per child

Cost for 15 children: £248.50 per child


There will be a reduction in cost for those who receive the government funded pupil premium grant. You will be able to pay in instalments, with the final payment due before the Easter break 2018.


As you can see, this is cheaper than going for two nights. I have organised a fun-filled itinerary which will provide the children with opportunities to speak French.


Please be advised that if we do not have at least 15 children the trip will be cancelled. As the school will make this cancellation, your deposit will be refunded.


If you have already paid the deposit (based on the original, 2 night, trip) then you do not have to pay anything for now.


If you wish for your child to take part in this exciting opportunity, and have not paid the original deposit then please pay a non-refundable deposit of £35 by Monday 16th October 2017.


As France is a different country, each child will require a free EHIC medical card and a passport. If your child does not have a passport you can purchase one online for £46 or use the Post Office service for £55.75. The cost of the passport is in addition to the cost of the trip.


The final cost will be confirmed when all deposits are paid and numbers are finalised.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to me.


Yours sincerely


Miss Gregory



PLEASE RETURN BY Monday 16th October 2017
