School trips

Our school trips are used to enhance the curriculum in many subject areas. Term-time trips always have a direct curriculum link, and during the holidays a variety and mixture of curriculum and leisure trips are run by staff.

Staff believe that visits and school journeys benefit the students, not only by widening their horizons, but also by allowing them to establish a different set of relationships with each other and with their teachers.

Below is an example of school trips during the academic year.
