What’s Included

 

Does the fee include accommodation?

Yes. The fee includes accommodation throughout the programme. The programme uses the Woodstock dorms and will have Woodstock dorm parents assigned to look after the pastoral needs of all students.

 

Does the fee include all meals?

Yes, we try and cater for all tastes, as well as a range of dietary requirements.  The information packet participants will receive by mid-April will collect this important information to shape our planning. The programme also provides snacks in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Participants will not go hungry.

 

Do I need to bring pocket money?

Not really; we do ask that a small amount of pocket money is brought for any gifts to take home or tuck shop sweets, or to spend at the airport while waiting for flights. We suggest to bring no more than 2000 INR. Foreign currency may be exchanged at the Delhi airport. In addition, there is an ATM on the Woodstock campus.

 

What shall I pack?

A complete list will be included in the information packet participants will receive in mid-April.

 

Healthcare and Safety

 

What medical cover is there at Woodstock?

Woodstock has its own medical staff and health centre and there will be a 24/7 nurse present during the summer programme. The information packet participants will receive by mid-April will include an important medical form. There is a small local hospital near to the school which can treat minor injuries and we use the Max Specialty Hospital in Dehradun for major illnesses and emergencies.

 

Will my child be safe at Woodstock?

We have 24/7 security all around our campus. We take security very seriously at school and that is why our school’s child protection policy is updated often and applied not just during normal school hours but also during our summer programme. All external staff must read and sign this policy before they are contracted.
