Sir John Lawes School always tries to provide its students with opportunities for personal and educational enrichment through a varied programme of residential trips. These trips support the curriculum and try to encompass most departments. The Year 7 autumn term trip is organised to provide personal development opportunities and an invaluable bonding experience for our younger students. Please find below a list of our Residential trips currently planned or proposed for the above academic year to give you an idea of what is available and the likely cost. Please note trips are currently proposed and will only run if numbers allow.
ParentPay is the web payment service that lets parents pay online by credit and debit card or in cash at PayPoint stores to schools and school suppliers.
Important Post Brexit Information
The rules for travel to most countries in Europe will change if the UK leaves the European Union (EU) without a deal on 31 October 2019. Therefore, all British passport holders must have at least six months remaining on their passport from your date of arrival, otherwise they may be refused entry. This applies to adult and child passports.
Please also note: if you renewed a 10 year adult passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to your passport’s expiry date. These extra months will not count.
If your child is going on a school trip please could you ensure that their passport has 6 months remaining from the date of arrival.
Non-EU Passport Holders
If your child is going on a school trip please could you ensure that they have their passport and visa where required.
If you are a non-EU national wishing to visit or travel within the EU, you will need a passport:
- valid for at least 3 months after the date you intend to leave the EU country you are visiting,
- which was issued within the previous 10 years,
- and a visa.
You should apply for a visa from the consulate or embassy of the country you are visiting. If your visa is from a Schengen area country, it automatically allows you to travel to the other Schengen countries as well. If you have a valid residence permit from one of those Schengen countries, it is equivalent to a visa. You may need a national visa to visit non-Schengen countries.
