Clubs, Trips & Visits
Throughout the school journey there are visits offered to support the curriculum, both visitors coming into school and local trips. We also offer some amazing extra-curricular trips including opportunities to go abroad and be immersed in a foreign language experience, we work with the Outward Bound Trust and offer the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
After School Clubs
All the opportunities we offer in outdoor education can help students with their personal development.
Duke of Edinburgh Award
The Scheme demands considerable commitment and determination but many universities and employers recognise the value of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, as it shows the holder has self-discipline, enterprise and perseverance. We offer the Bronze and Silver awards in lower school. Students are invited to sessions to cover the expedition section of the award; pupils then choose other activities to complete in their own time for the skill and physical recreation sections.
All groups go on practice expeditions during the year and assessed expeditions take place at the end of Summer Term in early July. Silver expeditions involve walking for three days, while the Gold groups walk for four days to meet the requirements of the award; at both levels, participants carry all of their kit and are totally self-sufficient.
