Suggestions of things to take for the journey
Take a rucksack/small bag with you on the coach to carry the things you need to take for the
journey. The bag will also be useful for day trips in Barcelona.
Wear something that will be comfortable. It is quite a long journey and you might want go to
sleep. Jogging bottoms, sweatshirts and comfy jeans are ideal.
A small pillow or cushtie can be a good idea. On the last trip the sun was quite bright and
pupils found it beneficial to wear sunglasses.
There is almost a day of travel, so make sure your child has a packed lunch. Avoid sticky and
messy food – in particular keep away from fizzy drinks and things that go off quickly.
Bring something to read and perhaps a pack of cards or small game. Electrical equipment,
IPods, mobile phones etc and cameras are good but, please note, these are your
If you take medicines, inhalers etc, make sure that you have enough for the whole stay and
that you have sufficient with you on the coach. We are unable to give out paracetmol/ travel
sickness tablets, so it would be a good idea to take some tablets should you perhaps suffer
from a headache or sickness during any part of the trip. Due to some people’s allergic
reactions to plasters, it would be better to take your own. Sun cream and a hat are essential
as the weather is likely to be very warm (hopefully!).
NB. Should your child have to take medicines on a regular basis, please ensure you have
informed the staff in writing, if you have not already done so.
Take something to freshen up with during the journey, for example
Generally for the whole journey.
Several pairs of jeans, jogging bottoms, trousers etc.
A couple of pairs of shoes / trainers.
Underwear for the week!!
Tops and jumpers
Smarter clothes for the evening.
Light coat/ jacket/ waterproof.
Pencil, coloured pencils.
Pen, rubber, glue stick.
Adapter/plug. PASSPORT, MONEY AND THE 4 ENVELOPES.
We have agreed certain strategies for the supervision of money during
the trip. Money should be divided by parents into FIVE amounts
*Money for the outward journey (sterling/Euros) to be carried by your
*4 sealed envelopes clearly marked Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday with your child’s name and amount.
(Remember the visit to FC Barcelona is on Wednesday so if any pupils
wish to buy shirts more needs to be included in this envelope).
These will be collected on the morning of departure and members of
staff will then be responsible for issuing this at the appropriate times.
Remember everything – (all meals, apart from on the journey) –
is included other than your child’s personal spending money!!
