Long haul and multiple stopover flights at HALF TERMS only

The School understands the difficulties some families may experience with booking flights at HALF TERM that will meet the requirements of the School.

The School will consider allowing pupils to leave at earlier times only during the Lent half-term provided that the following rules are followed:

For long haul flights (6 hours or longer) or multiple stopover/connecting flights:
• Permission must be asked in advance of booking the flight (permission should be asked no
later than the start of term)
• The return flights must arrive on the correct date at the end of the half term holiday
• The correct flights must be booked for the start and end of term dates

For short haul flights (fewer than 6 hours):

Where a direct flight is available which requires a departure before the official start of the
half term the School will consider giving permission provided no other suitable direct flight
exists and providing that:
• Permission is asked in advance of booking the flight (permission should be asked no later
than the start of term)
• The return flights arrive on the correct date at the end of the half term holiday
• The correct flights are booked for the start and end of term dates

Please note that during the Summer term all students must attend Sports Day. Pupils are free to
depart from 14.00 after checking out with their Housemaster/Housemistress.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Deputy Head or the Headmaster.
