Educational Visits

Several parents have requested an overview of all the visits that are on offer for the whole 7 years at St Ivo School. This can be found in the tables below. There is one table for Years 7 to 11, and another for Sixth Form.

Cost calculator: If you click the box alongside the title, the cost will be added to the total at the foot of the grid. Please note that everything you see comes with no guarantee. Visits are sometimes cancelled because of political unrest, stormy seas, etc. Prices will fluctuate due to oil prices, accommodation costs, etc. It would be impossible to give an accurate price for a visit that might take place in 7 years time. The cost of visits will be updated on a regular basis when prices are confirmed. Please rest assured that we will always endeavour to get the best possible deal for your children both financially and educationally.

Visit details: If you roll over the title of any visit a brief description can be seen, for example the purpose, location, approximate cost, number of students, and number of lessons, days or nights away from school.

Visit categories: In the description, you will also see a category A, B, C, or D.

Please note:

As many parents will appreciate, the organisation and administration of educational visits is a major challenge for teachers and support staff in the finance department, medical room, staffing office, and SEN department. We endeavour at all times to ensure a smooth and safe process, and seek to make improvements at every opportunity. Please experiment with the system and give us any constructive feedback, for example ‘What Went Well; Even Better If...’

Sports fixtures and local trips:

From time to time students may participate in “zone 1” visits as defined within our Educational Visits policy, specifically:

Staff will plan such visits thoroughly, including ensuring that an appropriate staff to student ratio is in place and that they have access to parents contact details. However, for these visits, the school will not typically ask parents/carers for separate consent. In the case of sports fixtures which run outside of the normal school day, it is the responsibility of the student to inform parents/carers of the details of the visit, including the venue, departure and return times so that parents/carers can ensure students have a safe way to then travel home.

Parents/carers have the right to withdraw consent for their child to participate in zone 1 visits. To withdraw consent please email mcraig@stivoschool.org or write to Dr M Craig, Deputy Headteacher.
