Year 8 Trip to Holland

The Science Department wishes to invite Y8 students to experience inspiring science in a different culture. With this in mind, a residential trip is being organised to the Netherlands. The area is visited by many schools and colleges because it is an ideal country to study science, history and culture.  The trip will take place from 19/06/2017 to 23/06/2017.

The trip includes a number of visits to museums and places of cultural significance as well as some social occasions for the students. The students will visit Nemo museum, Anne Frank house and museum, The International Peace Palace museum with the International Peace Flame, ESA Space Expo, Corpus Experience, dinner at the Hard Rock Café Amsterdam, a private canal cruise and a trip to Walibi World. Please see the attached more detailed itinerary and museum information. 

The cost of the trip including transport (coach and ferry); all accommodation on the ferry and the hostel Slot (Castle) Assumburg, in Heemskerk near Amsterdam; all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner); all museum and canal boat expenses; Amsterdam hoodie; two Amsterdam t-shirts, a safety wristband and travel insurance will be approximately £480 (to be confirmed as soon as possible) and we hope that you would want your child to take part.
