School Trips

School trips extend our students’ knowledge and understanding of the world and give them opportunities to develop their skills, awareness, confidence and initiative in practical ways and in an informal environment.

We offer a wide range of trips to students. Some are directly related to the curriculum or co-curriculum, some are designed to promote cultural awareness, to enhance communication or physical skills, or to develop self-reliance, leadership potential and team-work.

The following trips are planned for 2017/18. Parents receive letters inviting applications for these trips.
