Staff meetings or extended twilight sessions are only available to

  • Schools within a 30 radius of Ipswich, or

General travel information

 

Where possible, the cheapest mode of transport or ticket price is sourced.

 

All flights are economy class

 

Due to geographical location (Ipswich), most travel will be by car.

 

Travel is charged at 45p per mile

 

Travel to London schools will be by train from Ipswich Station to London Liverpool Street Station.  This includes a drive to the station, rail ticket and a car parking fee.

 

If a school is more than two hours drive (post codes used with www.rac.co.uk/routeplanner), then 50% of the cost of accommodation is required.  Accommodation is usually Travelodge, Days Inn, Premier Inn etc, therefore 50% will be in the region of £25 to £40 per night.

 

VAT of 20% is applied to the final invoice.  In most cases, schools can claim the VAT back.  Please check with your school office.

 

International Schools

 

Due to location, costs and times can vary a great deal.

 

Please get in touch for initial costs and check out the International Schools page.
