Arrivals Day

Phew! 136 students arriving at four different Heathrow terminals all safely on their way to Sibford and Port Regis or already there! Plus students arriving at Gatwick and Birmingham all safely accounted for. The new system of alerting UK Border Agency staff to look out for our students worked really well - the badges and parental permission letters helped - and so far as I am aware no one suffered lengthy delays at passport control. Thank you very much to all our staff for their quick wits, flexibility and great communications today. An excellent start. Now let the fun, friendship and learning begin!
