Despite the current budget constraints, the governors and staff remain committed to offering residential visits as an invaluable contribution to students' wider development, enjoyment of, and engagement with school. We recognise that school trips can place some considerable financial pressure on parents, although we do aim to keep costs to a minimum. In order to assist with forward planning we are publishing our proposals for next year now.
The governors have agreed that we will run the following residential visits on an annual basis for the foreseeable future:
Year 10 trip to Auschwitz, Poland
Governors were strongly supportive of the role that this visit plays in the wider development of our young people and of its potential to help combat extremism in all of its forms.
Annual languages trip
This trip will run every year, rotating the venue across the three languages taught in school, ensuring that all students would be able to participate in a languages trip at some point in years 7, 8 or 9.
Year 10 - Auschwitz, Poland. 4 days. approx. £520
Years 8-10 Ski trip, Alpe D'Huez. 7 days approx £840. (This trip will be subject to annual review after 2018-2019.)
Years 8-10 Sports tour to Italy. 5 days. approx. £700. (This trip will be subject to annual review after 2018
Years 7 and 8. MFL trip to Spain. 3-4 days approx. £375.
Year 10 Science trip to CERN, Geneva. 3 days approx. £370. (This trip will be subject to annual review after 2018-2019.)
Letters for the Ski trip and Sports trip are available at Pupil Reception and CERN letters from the Science prep room.
There will also, as ever, be a wide variety of low cost curriculum day trips, field trips and overnight visits and we hope to be able to publish this in our end of year Newsletter in July.
