ARTS & HUMS - A Level Music Visit to the London Coliseum 02.04.20


I am delighted to invite your son/daughter to join us on an educational visit to the London Coliseum to see an English National Opera production of ‘The Marriage of Figaro’

The purpose of the visit is to enable students to see a live performance of one of the set works for A-level Music in preparation for their exams. This is a compulsory visit for our Year 12 music students.

You will be aware that the current terror alert in London is set at substantial in light of the recent terror attacks, it is only right that we bring this to your attention, we believe it is important to ensure our students get a wide variety of experiences in relation to their studies at One, therefore we will continue to support trips and visits where students, their parents and staff are supportive of them going ahead.

The total cost for the trip to include rail travel (not underground travel) and admittance fee into the Coliseum will be £32 per student.

We have limited tickets available for the performance so please if you don’t want your son/daughter to miss out on this worthwhile experience we advise to book their place quickly to avoid disappointment. Please ensure payment reaches us by Friday 6th December 2019.

Students will need to meet promptly at Ipswich station at 13:45 to catch the train into Liverpool Street Station. Please note that student’s Underground travel is not included and they will require approximately £5-10 to use this service depending if they have an Oyster Card/Contactless Banking Card.

Prior to the performance we thought it would be nice to go out for a nice meal as a group to celebrate our student’s achievements this academic year so additional money will be required for this.

Students may also wish to bring additional money to purchase a programme at the theatre or any sweets.

Students will need to make the necessary arrangements to be collected promptly from Ipswich Station at around Midnight. Students will be able to contact parents with an exact pick up time on the train journey home.

Gareth Evans, Teacher of Music and myself will accompany students for the duration of the visit.

Please return parental permission slip directly to the Finance Office (G104) between the hours of 9.00am-1:15pm by Friday 6th December 2019
