Airport

We pick up from Stansted (closest airport to camp), Heathrow and Gatwick.

Flights need to arrive between 12:00 - 14:00 and depart between 14:00 - 16:00. Please note that there are additional charges for flights outside of these times.

We allow plenty of time for traffic which may lead to waiting time at the airport or station. Please note we may be collecting lots of children arriving at a similar time to your child which may also lead to some supervised waiting time.

Visas

Non-EU students may require a VISA to enter the UK. Should you require a VISA, we have an ‘Invitation’ letter that we can scan to you. This will include details of our certification and your child’s stay. We will need to have received a scan copy of your child’s passport so we can include the relevant details. If you require, we can also courier this document to you for an additional charge.

Most our non-EU children / students arrive to the UK on a Standard Visitor VISA. Feel free to consult us if you have any questions. However, we are not able to advise on the VISA application process and recommend that you consult the UK Government Website or your local UK embassy.
