Trips and visits

Trips and visits throughout 2017-18

We run a wide variety of trips and visits designed to enrich the taught curriculum and enhance the learning experience at the school. Some are linked directly to the taught syllabus (eg field trips are a compulsory part of the Geography course), others are encouraged as a way of gaining a deeper understanding (eg language exchanges in France, Germany and Spain) and some simply help to gain a broader range of invaluable life experiences eg PGL residential trips.

The trips that are planned for this academic year are as follows:
