This may apply to the other Grammar schools as well but..

The older DS (in year 10) is off skiing with the school over Easter to Canada for a week.

This is his first school trip.

Costs £1200, plus all the extra's - kit hire and spending money, so nearer £2000.

Fortunately the ex has paid for this out of the maintenance money.

However there is now a 22 day trip the LA, New Zealand and Fiji in summer 2010. Cost £2650 plus spending money !!

Ex is paying £1000, me £1000 and DS £650 before spending money.

We had told him he could go on two trips whilst he was there, so hopefully that is that for him.

So just a warning to get saving or get a second job !!!

thats nothing!!! You are blooming lucky they are in a grammar school! My DS won't pass the 11plus (for many reasons) My husband and I both teach in grammar schools and we are going to have to shell out 12,000 a year for the next 6 years!!!! (Including remortgaging our house for 40 grand or so)

please don't moan :roll:
