All classes will, where appropriate, organise trips relevant to their topic. We aim to keep these costs as low as possible and follow the guidelines in the charging and remissions policy (see policies).
Where possible we use our school minibuses but on occasions they are already being used or we do not have any volunteer drivers available so we have to hire a coach.
We never over charge in order to cover costs. If we do not receive enough voluntary contributions to cover the costs then we may have to cancel the trip.
