Sign-up Information

The sign-up period for the October trips runs from May until the 23 August 2017 (first day of classes). To comply with UK regulations and for insurance reasons, every student who travels during October travel week needs to actively be signed up by 23 August, irrespective of whether he/ she is a boarder or a day student. The online sign-up process takes about 10 minutes.

Please also read the TASIS England insurance coverage for school trips, the student travel agreement, and the TASIS England cancellation policy, and note that the Head of Upper School is the only person who can excuse boarding students, Seniors and IB students from participating in the October travel week. Withdrawal requests need to be in writing (before 23 August) and will be considered if there is a justified reason. Make sure you have reviewed and discussed the trip options with your child (9th, 10th and non-IB 11th grade students), possibly considering his/her friends' preference; destinations are final once signed up. Please note that no student can repeat the same trip two years in a row, as the objective for 10th and non-IB 11th grade trips is to broaden the students' historical understanding of European history.

  • You will need to upload the picture page of the passport the student will be using for this trip (a scan or photo, max. 10 MB)
  • The student’s UK residence permit or visa (max. 10 MB; not necessary for EU passport holders). If the student is moving to the UK, the residence permit/ visa copy should be sent to the Travel Coordinator as soon as it is available.
  • Names, addresses, and phone numbers of two emergency contacts that can be reached during the October travel week
  • The family doctor's (GP's) name, address and phone number
  • Private insurance policy number (if relevant)
  • Credit or debit card payment for day students (£1175 for 9th, 10th and 11th grade trips, and £1725 for 12th grade trips) is due together with the online application

After having completed the online sign-up form, you will receive an automated email confirming that the application has been acknowledged. If you do not hear from the Travel Coordinator otherwise by 7 September, please assume your child has a secured place on the chosen trip. The final trip lists as well as detailed trip information can be viewed on the LMS (Learning Management System) and in the Red Corridor at school. There will be three October trip meetings for students and chaperones on the following days: Wed, 20 Sep, Wed, 27 Sep, and Wed, 4 Oct. An optional parent-chaperone trip meeting will be held on Mon, 2 Oct 2017 at 7pm.
