SPRING BREAK 2018 – INFORMATION FOR THE BOARDING COMMUNITY
Departure From Campus
Boarders are permitted to leave campus for the break after school finishes at 15:15 (3:15 p.m) on Friday, March 23, 2018.
We will be handling the Spring Break departure/return information for boarding students through our Boardingware Leave Application system only. Students (or their parents) are asked to make their Spring Break leave application as soon as practicably possible. Please note that all permissions must be in place before student departure.
All students are required to have left campus by 13:00 (1 p.m.) on Saturday, April 24, unless exceptional circumstances exist, for which we will need prior information and the agreement of the Director of Boarding.
Return Travel Arrangements
Boarders should return to TASIS on Sunday, April 8, 2018 by 19:00 (7 p.m.) Please do not book flights that will have your son or daughter returning to school after this time. Information for a reliable taxi company can be found below, and you can book on-line to ensure your child’s safe collection from the airport.
Taxi Service Information
We recommend that students pre-book a taxi and coordinate with other students if at all possible, to share the ride and cost from the airport to TASIS. Please ensure that your child has money on hand to pay for their taxi ride. Fares from Heathrow start at £18 for Terminal 5 and £22 for all other terminals, however, they increase for early morning or late-night collections. Please check the Gemini Taxi website for further information on pre-booking collection by taxi, or you may call Gemini on +44 1784 471111.
