After growing concerns over students missing out on school trips, where places are limited but demand is high, it has been decided that the first come first served principle is no longer viable for some of the trips offered.
In the future, such trips will be advertised in the normal way, via e-comms or via this website. In this initial communication a reply element will allow parents to express an interest in the trip, without committing to any immediate payment. After 1 week, responses will be collated and a draw will take place to select those who will be allocated a place on the trip. Successful students will then be notified and payment arrangements made. Those students who are unsuccessful will also be notified.
We will continue to monitor this system to see that it alleviates the recent issues experienced.
