The intention is to offer a range of trips at different prices to suit all home financial circumstances.

Students are expected to behave as they would in school.  They are also expected to be prepared for trips in terms of the necessary skills, resilience and attitude.  The school reserves the right to not take students on trips who have demonstrated that they have not met the above requirements, either in school or on previous trips.  Where there is over-demand for a trip then staff reserve the right to use the above to create a waiting list.
