Trips and visits

Trips and visits throughout 2019-20

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 cultural exchange with the USA and the language exchanges with France, Germany and Spain) and some simply help to gain a broader range of invaluable life experiences eg PGL residential trips.

All trips require up to date medical information. Parents/carers are responsible for ensuring that we have received, prior to any trip, all relevant medical information about your child and contact information during your child's trip.

Trip payment due dates are in line with payments we have to make towards the trip ie flights, venue, transport, other bookings etc, therefore, if we do not receive payments on time your child may lose their space on the trip.

The trips that are planned for this academic year are as follows please see the school calendar for exact dates:
