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.
We also want to broaden our students’ experience of other cultures. In previous years, students have been to Costa Rica on a conservation project and to South Africa for a cricket tour, having raised the funds themselves through a variety of events. Trips abroad have obviously been hindered in the last two years, however we hope to resume them in the near future, with an MFL trip to Paris and the Aldridge Futures Trip to Iceland.
