Geography and Spanish trip to Costa Brava: Monday 19 – Friday 23 June 2023

Excellent news! We are able to confirm that the Spanish and Geography trip to Barcelona next year is able to go ahead as planned.

We have had a significant amount of interest in the trip and, as a result of the number of deposits we have received, we find ourselves in a position where we are over-subscribed.

This means that places on the trip will be allocated using a draw process, as stated in the initial letter, however we will prioritise those students studying both Spanish and Geography.  Given that we now have more students wanting to attend than we have capacity for, we will also take into consideration students’ attitude, behaviour and conduct, both inside and outside of the academy, through consultation with the pastoral team, before reaching a final decision.

We will confirm the final list of students who are attending once we have finalised details with the tour operator in September.  Anybody who has paid a deposit, but has not been allocated a place, will have their deposit returned to them towards the start of the academic year.
