Trips and Visits
Visits are arranged by class teachers during the year.
These are a valuable extension to the curriculum and often relate to topics studied in the classroom, e.g. theatre trips, visits to factories, farms, museums and art galleries etc.
We expect all students to take part in these group outings and if there is any problem with finances please contact the class or form teacher.
Information about the visit will always be sent in advance to parents, and a reply slip will be attached for permission and/or payment. Students will not be able to go unless the permission slip is returned, and prompt replies are appreciated.
For day trips it is usual for uniform to be worn, and this is often requested by the host institution. Day trips will normally begin and end at school. Parents/guardians will be notified of any change to this prior to the visit taking place.
A School Journey involves an overnight stay of at least one night and, as for visits, full details of the arrangements for travel, activities involved and cost will be given to parents.
Payments will usually be spread over a period.
Parents are reminded that they are responsible for ensuring that their child has the correct documentation for any overseas trips (e.g. valid passport).
The Year 6 and Year 7 School Journey is considered to be part of the curriculum. All Year 6 and Year 7 students are expected to take part in this.
Information about College journeys and trips planned for 2018-2019 will be published on our calendar. Please note however, that it is possible that further journeys may take place as appropriate.
The school Code of Conduct applies on any trip or journey.
