Going on a school ski trip is an opportunity to take part in an exciting outdoor learning experience in which pupils learn the skill of skiing while also developing their confidence and independence to cope away from home.
Pupils travel abroad to a ski resort and typically spend 5 days attending ski school. Each day they take part in morning and afternoon ski lessons in a group with a professionally qualified ski instructor. Pupils will move groups during the week, depending on their progress.
After skiing, pupils have some free time and then take part in activities such as visiting the local area, bowling and a disco night.
Within the price of the trip, pupils provided with transport, accommodation, meals, equipment hire and all scheduled activities.
