Dear Parent/carer,

Year 8 trip to Germany

We have arranged for our current year 8 students to have an unforgettable opportunity to visit Germany in July 2023 in the picturesque Eifel region. Whilst in Germany we will visit one of the country’s top theme parks ‘Phantasialand,’ visit the historical town of Trier for some shopping, with a 1 hour boat trip on the Moselle river and spend time riding the ‘Sommerrodelbahn’ (summer toboggan). This is an amazing opportunity for students to gain independence and confidence as well as develop social skills and widen their cultural capital.

Dates: Tuesday 18th July until Friday 21st July 2023 (departing school at approx. 5 am)

Duration: 4 days and 3 nights

Cost: £460 

Accommodation: Saarbrucken Youth Hostel
