Trips and visits 2016-17

Proposed trips and visits throughout 2016-17

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 are just for fun (eg the skiing trip).

The trips that are planned for the academic year 2016-17 are shown below (for exact dates, please refer to our calendar). If information packs are available, these can be found below against the relevant trip.
