Supervision During Excursions and Trips
Our Junior students, aged 10 – 12, are supervised for all excursions by a teacher with a group ratio of 1 teacher:6 students.
Our Senior students, aged 13 – 17, are unsupervised for all excursions (unless notified otherwise on relevant supervision form or via parental portal) but must check in at a meeting point at designated times throughout the trip and must remain in a minimum student group size of 4.
The Course Director will make the final decision regarding supervision.
Parents will be required to complete their consents for both supervision and medical care via the parental portal – details of access to this will be issued during the enrolment process.
