Yesterday, the Government announced that schools and colleges are being advised against all overseas trips for children under 18 until further notice. This is one of the latest measures announced as part of the Government’s coronavirus response.

We are currently in discussions with the travel companies, insurance companies and the Trust regarding the two France trips and the Holland trip and we politely request that you do not contact us and allow us to gather all accurate and relevant information so that we can share the right information with you. Our intention is to provide you with a full update by the earliest possible opportunity.
