The Championships Wimbledon 2022 – Update

We are having to change the date of the Wimbledon trip from June 27th – 28th as tickets for these dates have already sold out.

The provisional new dates are Tuesday 28th to Wednesday 29th June 2022. Due to the change in dates, the price of the trip may increase by approximately £10.

To ensure the trip can go ahead,  we need to have 40 students who have paid their £30 deposit by Wednesday 10th November 2021.

If you have any concerns or wish to discuss this further, please contact Mrs Sansam either by email ([email protected]) or by phone (01522 871400)

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

As part of our enrichment programme, we are offering students the opportunity to visit The Championships, Wimbledon from Tuesday 28thth June 2022 to Wednesday 29th June 2022 inclusive.

This will give students the opportunity to experience a Grand Slam tennis championships held at one of the most prestigious sporting venues within Britain. Students will have the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere and watch world class tennis, with tickets for seating on the newly refurbished No.3 court. They will also have access to all the outside courts within the Wimbledon complex and the infamous Henman Hill.

We estimate the cost of the visit to be £220. This includes an overnight stay in a London hotel with breakfast the following morning, two picnic lunches, sightseeing and a visit to either the London Science Museum or the Natural History Museum.  

Please note only three meals are provided within the cost of the trip so please budget for extra meals and refreshments throughout both days.  We recommend a budget of £30 per day.

To secure a place, please ask your son/daughter to collect a letter from the library or print out the letter from here: click here for full letter. We also request an initial non-refundable deposit of £30, to be paid via our ParentPay system by 20th November 2021. Thereafter, we are happy to accept small instalments to suit yourself; however, in order to fulfil our contractual obligation to the travel company, we ask that your account is fully paid by 25th April 2022.  We ask for the following payments to be made by the corresponding dates:

  • 10th November 2021 – £30 deposit to secure your booking.
  • 12th January 2022 – £70
  • 11th April 2022 – £110 or remaining balance to be paid in full.

The anticipated price is based on at least 40 students attending the trip. Until we receive this number of deposits all monies will be held by the Academy then paid to Sport Experiences after the 40th deposit.

I must state that all deposits will be held by the Academy until paid to Sport Experiences at which time will become non-refundable unless a replacement can be found.
