Dear Parent/Carer, 

Programme of International Visits

I am delighted to be able to share with you our programme of international trips that the academy will make available to students over the next two years. These visits will provide our students with the opportunity to engage in rich cultural and sporting experiences. We are proposing to run the following international visits during school holidays:
 | Academic Year | Cultural Experience | Sporting Experience
| 2022 – 2023 | Paris & Disneyland - France | AC Milan Football - Italy
| 2023 – 2024 | TBC | Skiing - Italy

Paris & Disneyland (France) by coach 

Students will spend time exploring the cultural landmarks of Paris, evening meal in the Hard Rock Cafe. Students will then enjoy two days at Disneyland.

AC Milan Football Tour by air 

Students will participate in a football development programme. They will benefit from coaching sessions at the training complex where they will be treated like professional players. Whilst in Italy; students will be exposed to the local culture, take part in a stadium tour of the famous San Siro and have the opportunity to play a fixture against local opposition.
