Outside the Classroom

Trips and extra-curricular activities

Outside the classroom

Within all Departments in the Senior School we believe that pupils learn more effectively and develop a wider range of skills and deeper knowledge when they have the opportunity to do so beyond the classroom. The provision itself is broad, diverse and well planned throughout each school year for every pupil. These opportunities include frequent theatre visits, field expeditions, both regional and overseas for history and geography.

Adventurous and team building opportunities, all provide fantastic opportunities for young people at all stages of their education; seeing and experiencing their learning in action is undoubtedly a major benefit for all pupils.

Trips for the Senior School children include:

Residential trip to the Conway Centre Science trip to Chester Zoo STEM, Manchester
