Reserving your Superweek place

2021 Prices and Discount Information

Pricing

While you can reserve your Superweek place right now, we will not be asking for any payment until we are more certain that we will actually be able to run the holidays. We hope to be able to make a decision in May.

We have frozen our Superweek price at £469. When we open bookings, we will require a deposit payment of £80 per child per Superweek, with the balance of payment due four weeks before the start of the Superweek.

We always try to be small print-free, but there are some unknowns this year that make that difficult. We don’t expect our costs to rise significantly, but should they go up by over 10%, we may need to ask for a contribution towards those costs at the point we begin taking payments. We hope this won’t be necessary, and would only do so in exceptional circumstances.

We will guarantee full refunds to all customers if we are unable to run Superweeks for any reason, or if a child is unable to attend because they are self-isolating for any reason. If we have to change the conditions of booking or any of the logistics of a Superweek and you no longer want to book as a result, we will also guarantee full refunds. If you decide to cancel your booking for any other reason, we will honour the refund policy as set out in our terms and conditions.

Discount Information

Sibling DiscountBookings for second and subsequent siblings from within the same family.£40 off
Multiple Booking DiscountWhen the same child attends more than one summer Superweek in 2021£40 off
Please note: only one discount may be used per family, but we always work out the most rewarding combination for you. For sibling and multiple bookings the first booking of 2021 is full price; discounts will be applied to all subsequent bookings in 2021.

We are will not be taking payments until we are more certain that Superweeks can run. We will contact customers at the point we feel we can start taking money. Payment is possible by bank transfer, credit or debit card, or cheque.

All money due must be settled four weeks before the Superweek start date.

Please read the booking conditions carefully and then complete the booking form below.

If you are booking for more than one child, please use one form per child. If your child is booking with a friend please make sure both families agree the same Superweek, and contact the office to let us know the children would like to be grouped together.

  1. Children can only be accepted for a complete Superweek, i.e. arriving on the first day and leaving on the last day.
  2. Age ranges for holidays provide guidance for the age range we feel would get the most from a holiday. If your child is a year out at either side of an age range (but over 8 years old) and you feel they would cope, please ring the office to speak to a holiday Director.
  3. If you book for two friends to come together, we will do our best to put them in the same group within the Superweek, but cannot absolutely promise this.
  4. The £80 booking deposit is non-refundable (except in cases where a child is unable to attend because they are self-isolating due to Covid-19, or if changes we make to the conditions of booking or any of the logistics of a Superweek mean you no longer wish to book). If bookings are later withdrawn, any refund of money paid would be at ATE’s absolute discretion. Our decision would be influenced by the reason for the cancellation and how much notice was given.
  5. ATE will do all in its power to deliver its programme as set out. However, we reserve the right to cancel or alter holidays if circumstances beyond our control make this unavoidable. Parents would be told at once of any such changes, and they would be given the opportunity to switch to another holiday or, in the event of ATE needing to cancel a holiday, have a full refund.
  6. It is imperative that ATE is told at the time of booking about any disabilities, social or behavioural problems which could cause difficulties for the child and/or other children. ATE reserves the right not to accept children we do not think we can support properly. An ATE holiday is not necessarily the right solution for respite care, i.e. where a child is being sent not for his/her own benefit but for the benefit of parents or carers.
  7. ATE also reserves the right to ask that parents remove a child if his/her behaviour is putting other children, staff or him/herself at risk. ATE has an attitude of zero tolerance towards bullying and racism. In such cases collection from the Superweek would be the responsibility of, and at the expense of, the parent or guardian who completed the booking form. It is in no ones’s interest (least of all the child’s) to send someone to a Superweek who is likely to be unacceptably disruptive or aggressive.

Thank you for reading the Booking Conditions.

What happens next:

Our office team check all of the Superweek applications carefully. You should receive an acknowledgement of your reservation by email within 10 working days.

We will monitor the likelihood of Superweeks being able to run legally, safely, and to a high-quality, and keep customers up-to-date. As soon as we can, likely in May, we will made a decision on whether to begin taking formal bookings. At this point we would begin seeking payment from customers.

Nearer to the Superweek you will receive further information by email including a suggested clothing list, and further information about the week itself, including directions to the centre, contact details and guidelines for pocket money. At the same time we will ask you to fill in a short medical and personal information form, asking for further information about your child to help us look after her or him properly. It’s important that this form is returned to us at least 10 days before the start of the Superweek.

If your child is travelling on our free, accompanied travel system, final details will be sent to you by email and by post approximately 7 – 10 days before the day of departure.
