Trip Selection Process

Arnold Hill Academy is committed to providing equality of opportunity to students in the selection process for extra curricular and enrichment activities.

By completing and returning the trip consent form, parents give their commitment to make payment for the trip by the deadline stated in the letter, and understand that any money paid may be non-refundable should a student withdraw or be removed from the trip. We reserve the right to exclude from a trip, at any point, any student whose behaviour gives us cause for concern.

The majority of our school trips have a limited number of places. Should a trip be oversubscribed then places will be allocated on a random basis. This selection will be made from those students for whom we have received payment in full and a completed parental consent form, by the deadline stated in the trip letter.

If a student is not successful in securing a place on the trip through the random selection, they will be offered the opportunity to be placed on a reserve list. We appreciate that this may sometimes result in disappointment but we are limited by staffing constraints, costs to parents, venue capacity and external factors outside of our control.

Payments for Trips

  • When making a payment for a trip please pay online via SCOPAY
  • Deposits for trips are normally non-refundable if at a later stage your child decides not to go
  • If payments are not made by the deadlines given we may give your child’s place to somebody else on the waiting list and the deposit may not be refunded
  • If full payment has been made to the travel company for a trip and your child decides not to go it is unlikely any money will be refunded
