Ski Trip Parents Evening

12/12/2018 6:00pm

Dear Parent/ Guardian,

I am writing to you in relation to the English Martyrs School & Sixth Form College annual ski trip to the SkiAmade, Austria, Saturday 13th April – Saturday 20th April 2019.

A reminder that all payments should be made online using the Parentpay system, or, handed to the 6th Form reception with cheques made payable to “English Martyrs School”. 

The cost of the trip is £815 but please take into account the possible extras to the cost as detailed below.  Also enclosed is a second copy of the payment schedule for you to keep.  If you have not already made the payments for May, June, July and September these are now overdue.  If you have any problems meeting the payment schedule, please contact Sarah Tait at as strict payment deadlines between the school and IBT travel must be adhered to.  Extras to the cost include:

  • Hire of ski jacket and salopettes (if required) – £40 per person approx.
  • Lift pass supplements 18+  years old – £120 per person
  • Snowboarding in place of skiing – price yet to be confirmed until final numbers are known

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that every passenger should have their own EHIC health insurance card and passport. They cannot travel on a family passport, and new passports can take several weeks to come through.

We will be having a ski trip parents information meeting at 6.00pm on Wednesday 12th December in the school dining hall.  It is advised that it is attended by all students on the trip and a parent/guardian.  The meeting is an opportunity for us to relay important information and for you to address any issues that may need clarification. As well as identifying who you would like to share a room with in the hotel.  Even if you have been on the trip before it is important you attend as the trip changes slightly every year.

If your son/daughter no longer wishes to go on the trip, written confirmation must be provided for accounting purposes and to issue any possible refunds, but I must remind you that deposits are non-refundable.

If you have any questions regarding the trip or any other matter, please do not hesitate to contact me at school. Thank you for your support.

Yours Sincerely

Mr M. East (Party Leader)
