Trips & Visits
Students are given the opportunity to participate in many different visits each year. These are mainly organised by departments and range from numerous local trips and visits, which enhance the curriculum, to up to fifteen foreign visits each year to Europe, America and China.
Examples of recent trips include language visits to France, Germany, Spain and Italy, science visits to CERN and NASA, a geography expedition to Iceland and Religious Studies and History visits to Auschwitz and the First World War battlefields.
Expeditions to China take place on an annual or biennial basis, working with children in Inner Mongolia, as well as visiting Hong Kong and Beijing.
We also have a very successful Comenius partnership, which has been in existence since 2004. Our group of five schools has worked together on two large projects, the more recent of which can be viewed on the school website. This has allowed many students to take part in conferences in Poland, Finland, Germany and Hungary over the past two years; staying with families and experiencing life in different cultures from our own.
