Admissions Offer Information – Ski Trip (optional)

We have just returned from an amazing week of skiing in Switzerland. We took nearly 50 learners for six days of skiing and had amazing weather and tonnes of snow! Learners are still buzzing from the trip and already asking what our plans are for next year.

We are pleased to confirm that we have already booked next year’s ski trip for the February 2021 half-term break. The trip will depart on Friday, 12 February 2021 and return on Saturday, 20 February 2021.

We will be staying in the Ski Jumping Hotel in the Milky Way resort. This is an incredible resort and location and is actually the resort we visited nearly ten years ago on the Academy’s first Ski Trip. The cost of the trip has not yet confirmed but will be approximately between £1,200-£1,500* (last year’s trip was £1,325) and will include:

  1. Luxury return coach travel, departing from The JCB Academy
  2. Six nights’ full-board accommodation (including hot lunches on the mountain)
  3. Six days’ lift pass
  4. Hire of ski boots/skis/poles/helmets
  5. 30 hrs of ski instruction
  6. Full programme of evening entertainment

*The only additional cost will be for the hire or purchase of ski clothing, if required, and a small amount of spending money. Learners will also be required to attend the Tamworth Snow Dome leading up to the skip trip as part of their Extension Activity, the cost of this is approximately £110.

Over the past few years the après-ski programme has included ice-skating, bum-boarding, swimming, a trip into a local town to watch Six Nations rugby and Champions League football, 5-a-side football, disco nights, pizza nights at local restaurants, tobogganing, ice hockey matches and a ride on an alpine coaster. These activities were all included in the cost of the trip.

A Parents’ Information Evening will be organised in September to provide further information and the opportunity for any questions that you may have.
