October 2012 Residential visit to France 2013

October 2012


Dear Parent/Carer

Residential visit to France 2013


The Modern Languages department is planning a residential visit to France from Sunday 7th July to Thursday 11th July 2013.


Following the success of last year’s trip, we will be staying at the Château du Baffy, a centre for educational visits owned by School Travel Services, a U.K. based Travel Company. The accommodation and food at the Château are of a very high standard. It is situated in beautiful grounds in the Normandy countryside, near Bayeux and the Normandy landing beaches. The purpose of the visit is to allow students to gain experience of French language, culture and history, thus enriching their learning at the academy. There will be several excursions during our 5-day visit, both educational and recreational.


We will be travelling by British coach and have the sole use of it during our stay, subject to international regulations on the driver’s hours. Students will be under the direct supervision of a member of staff at all times and will be expected to adhere to the CBA behaviour code.


The total cost of the trip will be £390.00. This includes travel, accommodation, entrance fees, full travel insurance and meals (except lunch on the outward journey and evening meal on the return journey.) Please be assured that we have tried to keep all costs to a minimum and that the trip is good value for money. Students will need some pocket money if they wish to purchase extra snacks and souvenirs.


If you would like to reserve a place for your child on the residential visit, please complete the form below and return to student reception by Friday 16th November. Places will be allocated on a ‘first come first served’  basis. A. deposit of £100  is required-  via the academy ‘Wisepay’ system or by cheque payable to Corby Business Academy. This deposit is non-refundable unless the trip is cancelled or oversubscribed. More details of the payment schedule will be issued when your child’s place has been confirmed. The balance of £290 must be paid in full by the end of March 2013.


All students must have a valid passport in order to travel.





 If you require any further details, please do not hesitate to contact me at the Academy, by ‘phone or email,


Yours faithfully,


Mrs. K.M. Turney

Director of Subject, Modern Foreign Languages
