Trips & Visits
The best way for a young person to understand geographical features, take on board the struggles of a time in history, or even the motivation behind a piece of art, is for them to embrace that experience.
In Year 7 boys take part in a cultural experience to London Art Galleries, as well as a day at Rushall Farm where they learn about farming, land use and take part in environmental testing.
A geography trip to Lulworth Cove supports Year 8s’ understanding about geology and landforms. Year 10 enhance their study of the First World War with a poignant and reflective trip to Ypres, and also embark on a trip to Margam Park in Wales to conduct field work skills in preparation for their Geography exam at the end of Year 11. Our regular STEM* days offer a collaborative challenge for our girls and boys to work together.
As your son develops and matures, the opportunity to broaden his horizons through outdoor adventure and residential trips grows. Some trips are academic, such as the Modern Foreign Language and History trips to France, Spain and Germany whilst others involve adventure activities, navigation training or have a sporting element. All focus on confidence building and learning to work together in a different environment, with the added enjoyment of visiting new places and making new friends.
