During July and August, as well as during the Belgian Easter holidays, we organize weekly, supervised, round-trip travel between Brussels, Mons, Paris or Calais and Bournemouth, with transfers available to other destinations. This journey is available for all ages, including children. Minors (under 18) will not need authorization from their commune for this trip; we will send you an official document from the school for you to fill in.
This particular journey concerns all schools and programmes in Bournemouth, i.e.:

Important: The trip to Bournemouth normally has a Saturday departure and Sunday return (except for the first and last week of the holidays). This means that if your particular program ends on one of these days, you will spend an extra day (with full board) with your host family (included in the trip price).
For this extra night (Saturday - Sunday), it may be the case that a higher number of new students than anticipated require a bed for the beginning of their own program. In this situation of overlap, the level of comfort for the student may temporariliy be a spare bed or futon.
Students who are not staying in Bournemouth but instead need a transfer to Clayesmore, Seaford, Oxford, or Southampton, will spend the night between Saturday and Sunday (both upon arrival and before departure) at the group leader's residence in Bournemouth. The group leaders will devote their full attention to looking after the students. Students of the same age and gender will share a room.
