All abilities will be catered for from the beginner to most advanced – extra night ski may be made available dependent on snow conditions.

Once pupils have finished skiing they will be lead by the team on a variety of evening activities which will include those stated above as well as many more. There will be time to relax and socialise with new friends drinking the best hot chocolate around.


Pupil Statement:

‘When I came to St Josephs I went on the ski trip in Year 9 and Year 11. It was the best 2 weeks I have had away with the school. Not only did I learn a new skill but I got lots of exercise and experienced loads of new things. It also helped me look after myself because my parents weren’t there to tidy up my stuff. It is a phenomenal experience and I recommend it to anyone and everyone.’

Letters for the ski trip will be distributed to Year groups in February with an initial meeting in March.
