Pupil Travel Arrangements
Parents are expected to book flights which coincide with term dates – these are published well in advance here:
All Travel requests must be submitted NO LATER than two weeks before the departure date. This is to allow for a cost efficient travel schedule to be devised.
If the Pupil is on a Tier 4 Visa they will also need to complete the T4 Visa Form – available from their Housemaster/Housemistress.
On the day of travel:
If a pupil experiences any difficulties they should make contact with their Housemaster/Housemistress by telephone or email. The Housemaster/Housemistress will endeavour to assist, but appointed guardians may need to be involved where there are significant delays or problems which cannot be easily resolved. If it is during the working day (08.00 – 18.00) School reception can also be contacted.
Pupils travelling to Heathrow Airport
Where School Transport is used, pupils will be dropped at Terminal 3. There is a regular and free shuttle bus services between all other terminals.
Unless otherwise stated, Pupils returning to Heathrow should assemble at the Meeting Point in Terminal 3.
Pupil Transport enquiries can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If Parents wish to book their own transfer to and from Heathrow, the National Express Coach Service offers a direct and cheap service which can be booked directly by parents/guardians online www.nationalexpress.com
Traveling outside of published term dates
All requests for early leave must be directed towards the Principal Deputy Head, Mr Reid. If granted, all travel arrangements are the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
The School is happy to work closely with parents/guardians on ensuring all appropriate travel is organised for unaccompanied minors. If parents want school to organise transfers all transfer will be made using 4Hire Taxis or West Devon Taxis. (Taxi shares cannot be guaranteed.)
All costs for arrangements made by the School will be placed on the end of term account.
A School chaperone is located at Terminal 3 Heathrow and will assist pupils with their travel arrangements at the airport.
