Travelling safely to the UK

Whether your child is entering the UK for the first time or is a student returning after a school holiday, our guide will help them with travelling safely to the UK. As your child’s guardian we are committed to ensuring our students get to the UK safely.

Before you leave home

All students should have a mobile for use in the UK. You must confirm your mobile number when sending travel information. Make sure that this is your own number rather than the number of  your parent or agent. If you have requested a UK mobile, this will be provided after you have arrived. Please ensure your mobile phone:

On arrival in the UK

Once you have arrived at the airport, please:

There are three points in the airport where you may be delayed:

If you are delayed at any of these points for more than 15 minutes please phone your Academic Families contact to update us.

Immigration officers are checking all arrangements for under 18s travelling alone, so please be prepared to answer questions from immigration about your school and who is meeting you at the airport.

In case of emergencies, the Academic Families emergency number is +447734849554
