Proposed Sports Tour – Lignano Sabbiadoro – Italy Easter 2020

Wednesday, 23 January 2019

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Sports Tour – Lignano Sabbiadoro – Italy

2nd to 9th April 2020 - Easter

Idsall School is pleased to announce that it is giving students currently in Years 7, 8 and 9 the opportunity to participate in a Sports Tour to Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy, in 2020.  The Sports Tour will be for students who have an interest in playing football; this tour is not just targeted at students who play for Idsall School, it is open for all students who attend session 6 football and/or play the sport outside of school.

This will be a wonderful opportunity to develop their sporting prowess and broaden their horizons.  We will travel with Activ4, which is a company that we have used on many occasions.  You can access details of the company at  The duration of the trip will be 8 days and 5 nights and the cost of the tour will be £740.00 per person. The cost includes travelling by coach, return ferry crossing and full board accommodation. Students will participate in at least two football fixtures against local Italian opposition.  The complex has wonderful surroundings, international standard sports facilities, a blue flag beach and its own water park.

If you would like more information about this fantastic opportunity or to ask any questions about the trip, we are holding a Parental Briefing at Idsall School on Thursday 14th February 2019 in the Main Hall at 5pm. The meeting should take no longer than 60 minutes and will give you a full insight into the trip.

If you would like to attend the Parental Briefing, please complete and return the Parental Briefing reply slip to Mrs Rushton in the Finance Office by Friday 1st February 2019.

Once the briefing has taken place, we will be taking bookings for this trip. If you wish to take advantage of this wonderful experience, please complete and return the Residential Trip reply slip attached, along with a £100.00 NON REFUNDABLE deposit to the Finance Office by Friday 1st March 2019 in order to secure a place. (Deposits will not be accepted at the Parental Briefing.)

Please note that the deposit must be cash or cheque and will not be banked before trip confirmation has taken place.

The price we have been quoted is subject to the condition that we keep to strict payment deadlines with the travel company. Once the trip is confirmed, and places have been allocated we will write to parents again with confirmation of the payment deadline dates that we have to meet with the company. Therefore, we ask that you make your payments on or before the due dates otherwise late payments from us will incur a surcharge from the travel company, which will in turn affect all passengers on the trip. 

After the initial deposit and once the trip has been confirmed, all payments can be paid by the following methods:


  1. By Cash or Cheque to Mrs Rushton in the Finance Office.  Cheques should be made payable to Idsall School Fund.
  2. By online payment made via ParentPay - it offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available


Please note that any cancellations that are made after any payments are forwarded to the travel company will be subject to loss of monies unless a replacement is found. 

As with any school trip, parents and students should be aware that if a student’s behaviour or attendance become unacceptable prior to departure, then the school reserves the right to exclude them from the trip and this could jeopardise any refund of monies paid to that date.

Following the success of previous Sports Tours, we have found that students are really keen to purchase Sports Tour kit.  This will be at an additional charge to the cost of the trip; more details will be sent out to you closer to the tour date.

If you have any further queries please contact me at school and I look forward to seeing you at the Parental Briefing.

Yours faithfully.


Mr S Bell

Party Leader
