By air

 

Five major airports are within driving distance of Felixstowe :

Stansted 1.25 hours; Norwich 1.5 hours; Luton 2.5 hours; Heathrow 2.5 hours and Gatwick 2.5 hours. All have regular scheduled flights from around the UK and Europe.

Students arriving approximately at the same time at the airport arrival point will be met and accompanied to the school.

Where students whose flights arrive or depart on dates other than the course start or finish date escorted taxi transfers can be arranged at extra cost (approximately £150 for Heathrow). The cost is shared if more than one student is travelling. The cost increases for children travelling as Unaccompanied Minors (UMs) or travelling at unsocial hours. Please contact us for precise details.

 

By rail or road

 

If you wish to bring your child personally to the school please ask us for travel directions and details of local accommodation, if required.

Please note

 

    • Notification of flight details are required at least 2 weeks in advance to allow booking of transport.

    • Where possible we will put you in contact with other parents so that children can travel together. Young children can travel in the care of airline staff as Unaccompanied Minors (please check with your airline). This is safe and normal.
