French Study and Culture Trip 30th March – 4th April 2019
28th June 2018
We are planning to take a party of students from the current Remove to Study I to France at the end of the Hilary term 2019. This trip is open to all students irrespective of their knowledge of French and because we will be surrounded by really impressive and unique historical buildings, this trip will allow everyone to exercise one of our Habits of Mind – Responding with Wonderment and Awe. However, all students studying French are expected to go on at least one trip to France during their time at Wychwood, which includes all Remove, Inters and Lower Transits.
The cost of the trip will be approximately £650, (slightly less with a larger party), which includes:
Full use of executive coach for duration of trip
Return ferry crossing
5 nights’ full board accommodation with host families for students (breakfast, packed lunch and dinner)
Host family day
9 hours of French Tuition (even for non-French speakers)
All excursions/activities detailed in the itinerary. Draft itinerary attached
Students who wish to go will have a booking made by the school on their behalf with a recognised tour operator, Ardmore Educational travel. It is understood that all conditions of the booking are as laid down by the tour company; for example, deposits are non-returnable once they have been forwarded to the tour company. Therefore, acceptance of a place on the trip constitutes a commitment to make the remaining payments, unless another student can be found to fill the place.
A deposit of £100 will be required to secure a place, and a further payment of £275 at the start of the Michaelmas Term and a last payment of £275 at the start of Hilary Term. These last two payments would be included in your daughter’s school account for the Michaelmas and Hilary terms of the 2018-2019 academic year.
If you would like your daughter to have a place on this exciting fieldtrip, please complete the permission form opposite and send a £100 deposit by the end of term, in an envelope marked “France 2019” and your daughter’s name and form. The special price will only be held for us until 14th July, so a quick response is imperative.
If you have any further questions about this opportunity then please do not hesitate to contact me.
