Top Tips for Geneva – Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School

"If you haven’t been before, do an inspection visit. CERN does offer a free teacher visit on a guided tour but you can only book it two weeks in advance. The places go very fast and by the time I had filled the form out there were no places left. However, I still turned up at CERN when I visited Geneva and they were very accommodating. I had a good chat with the receptionist who answered questions about the group tour and I also got to see the Expo and Museum where we were also able to answer questions. I would recommend you just turn up and you will get a good idea of what you will cover with your students."

"Book your school tour of CERN on time, I didn’t confirm the Geneva trip with WST until I knew I had confirmation of the CERN tour. WST told me when my dates would be coming available on the CERN website, so I diaried this in advance so I was ready when our dates came up."

"Geneva public transport is free and easy to use You can get your free tickets at the airport in baggage handling area. It can be easy to miss the machine, so make sure you don’t leave baggage reclaim until you’ve got your tickets. "
