School Trips

School Trips

Learning through experiences outside the classroom is a key element of the overall educational ethos of the school.

Every year we run a huge range of trips, ranging from afternoon visits to local places of worship to a month trekking and carrying out community projects in the developing world, and everywhere in between. Some of these are designed to directly support work done in the classroom whilst others aim to develop character traits such as independence, resilience and team work and help broaden student perspectives.

Below you will find a list of trips scheduled to take place over the next few terms. Please note that this list is not necessarily exhaustive and all details are subject to change. Detailed communications will be sent to parents in advance of each trip.

Please view the School Visits and Tours Policy booklet for more detailed information.
