We have coaches leaving regularly from our designated airports to transport our students to each campus. We ask that all students book flights to arrive as early on arrival day as possible so that they are with us in plenty of time for the final transfer back to the campus.
Uniformed ISSOS staff will be at the airport to welcome all of our students and accompany them to the summer school.
Please note: Due to the large number of students arriving at the airport,your son/daughter may have to wait with our team for other students' flights to land before a bus departs for the campus.We will try to make this wait as short and comfortable as we can.
All students will be escorted to the airport on departure day. Students are asked to book flights that depart on the following dates before 12 noon (12:00). Flights as early as 07:00 GMT (7 am) are suitable for departure.
