School Trips

Trips and visits are an important part of our school year. Whether day outings or longer international expeditions, school trips can make a major contribution to the acquisition of knowledge and the development of interpersonal skills. They allow our students to learn outside of the classroom, with some important real-world experiences. Trips can enhance their confidence, independence and can contribute significantly to their personal development.

Below are details of some of the trips that have recently taken place, as well as some of the upcoming trips over this academic year.
