UKSA Water Sports Week opportunity for new sixth formers

We're very pleased to announce that we're running our residential UKSA Water Sports Week again this year! This summer we are running a 3 night/4 day residential multi-activity trip to UKSA on the Isle Of Wight for our 6th Form applicants; the trip will take place from the 6-9th August, 2018.

This is the third time this trip has been run, and each time it has proved to be a fun, eventful and sunny week away! This will give students a fantastic opportunity to meet other people who will be joining UTC Portsmouth in September, whilst learning how to sail, windsurf, paddle board and kayak!

The trip is inclusive of return transport from Gunwharf Quays, instruction, and all food and accommodation.  We've secured charity funding for the trip, which means the total parental contribution is only £100! That includes transport, accommodation, food, instruction and equipment as well as a camp t-shirt. 

In order to apply for the trip, the total cost of £100 is to be paid, alongside the completed booking form no later than 1st May 2018. Please also ensure that you have read the terms and conditions below.
