Sixth Form Amsterdam Trip September 2014



(also available for students in Year 11, internal & external, who have applied to join ECS Sixth Form for September 2014)

As part of our Sixth Form enrichment programme we have made a provisional reservation for a trip to Amsterdam for our Year 12 and 13 students.  The dates are Friday 26th September to Sunday 28th September.  We will be staying in MEININGER Hotel Amsterdam City West in Amsterdam where students will share twin or multi-bedded rooms with shower and wc.  The facilities include bed and breakfast and the students will have one dinner included at a nearby restaurant.

We are planning to include the following visits and more:-

  • Tour of City
  • Van Gogh Museum
  • Ajax Stadium
  • Canal Cruise
  • Cheese Factory
  • Windmill and Tulip Farm
  • Ann Frank’s House

The trip has been considerably subsidised to allow as many students as possible access to this fantastic experience.  The cost to each student will be £99.00, including travel by coach, Eurotunnel crossing and accommodation in Amsterdam for 3 days, breakfast on both mornings, evening meal on one evening, most of the visits and activities and insurance.  We require a non- refundable deposit of £50.00 by Friday 9th May (extended date) for a place to be reserved.  We will not be able to secure places after this date.  This can be paid via your parent pay account or at a pay point shop using the barcode which we will issue to you.  Students who are in receipt of FSM will be able to access a further subsidy to the cost of the trip (please contact Ms J Williams or Ms E Halil, Sixth Form Student Managers for more information).

Once we receive the first deposit, we will inform you of the details and deadlines for the other payment.

We look forward to hearing from you.
