Five Acres High School

COVID-19 / Ski trip update

Please see an update that was communicated to all parents on 10.3.2020

We would like to thank those parents who have been in contact showing care and concern for the students who are currently enjoying their skiing visit to Claviere. 

We would also like to thank you for your patience and understanding in allowing us to continue to run our school with the safety of the whole school community at the forefront. We have attempted to respond to as many requests for information as possible and we recognise that many of you still have questions about the safe return of these students and staff.  I can inform you that they will be leaving the resort on Wednesday 11 March, and we expect them to be back in the UK and home early on Thursday 12 March.  

As you would expect, in order to ensure the safety and well-being of the whole school community, we have been following the guidance and advice of the relevant Government agencies and will continue to do so on the return of staff and students. This is currently that travellers from Category 1 areas (including Italy) “should self-isolate, even if asymptomatic, and use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next”

We would like to stress that the advice currently available relates to those staff and students returning from the visit only. Up to date advice can be found at: 

Once again, your support is appreciated.
