THE SCHOOL RUNS SEVERAL TRIPS EACH ACADEMIC YEAR, RANGING FROM SHORT LOCAL OUTINGS DURING A GEOGRAPHY LESSON, TO THE SKI TRIP TO ITALY AND MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES TRIP TO PARIS.
Every student must return a signed permission slip in order to participate in any school trip.
If a trip extends beyond the school day parents and carers will either be informed of the return time or, on occasion for older students on local trips can sign to give permission for their child can make their own way home.
We try to keep the cost of trips down and parents are asked to pay using the Parent Pay system to simplify payment and prevent larger sums of cash being brought into school. If a parent or carer is struggling to pay for a trip please let us know as there is a small fund to help make sure all students get access to school trips and visits related to their lessons.
In October 2022 44 of PACA's year 10 and 11 students visited Paris for a 4 day trip. On their trip the students enjoyed a trip to a traditional bakery, a boat cruise along the river Seine, an 'escape room' walking tour through the streets of Paris, a climb up the hill to the famous Sacré Coeur Basilica and a day at Disneyland!
This was an extremely enjoyable and educational trip which allowed the students to put their language learning into practice speaking French and learning about French culture.
