Image of Austria ski holiday in April 2025

We are planning on taking LSA students on a visit to Austria in April 2025. This visit will give your child the opportunity to learn how to ski, improve on their current ability or challenge themselves for the more advanced skiers. The visit caters for all abilities of students in Y7- Y11, however places are limited and are given on a first come first served basis. Students’ behaviour record will be taken into consideration before the deposit is accepted. All students will be expected to have a good level of fitness to ski. This is a physically demanding visit and we wish for your child to be fit enough to enjoy and deal with the physical demands of what is a challenging week.


All students must have a valid UK passport with six months validity remaining after the end of the visit. If a non-UK passport is held then it is your responsibility to ensure that a valid visa is in place if required. Countries to be visited whilst in transit may include UK, Austria, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France. Whilst a group insurance policy will be in place, it is strongly advised that all participants also carry a GHIC Health Card. Available on the GOV website.


Students’ behaviour and conduct throughout the school year will be taken into consideration and may result in them being removed from the visit with the possibility of no refund given. The final decision on this will be at the discretion of the head teacher.
