Spring Break 2017: Arrangements for the Boarding Community
Boarders are permitted to leave campus for the break from 12:15 p.m. on Friday, 31 March.
We will be handling the Spring Break departure/return information for boarding students through our Boardingware Leave Application system and an email with further information will be sent to parents directly.
All students are required to have left campus, unless exceptional circumstances exist of which we will need prior information and the agreement of the Head of Boarding, by 13:00 (1:00 p.m.) on Saturday, 1 April.
Return Travel Arrangements
Boarders should return to TASIS on Monday, 17 April, by 19.00 (7.00 p.m). Please do not book flights that will have your son or daughter returning to school after this time. Information may be found below about a reliable taxi company where you can book online to ensure your child’s safe collection from inside the airport.
Taxi Service Information
We recommend that students pre-book a taxi and co-ordinate with other students, if at all possible, to share the ride and cost from the airport to TASIS. Please ensure that your child has money on hand to pay for their taxi ride. Fares start from Heathrow at £18 for Terminal 5 and £22 for all other terminals, however, they increase for early morning or late night collections. There is an additional cost for in-terminal pick-ups. Please check the Gemini Taxi website for further information on pre-booking a collection or you may call Gemini on +44 1784 471111.
Classes resume on Tuesday, 18 April, at 08:15 a.m.
