Trips and Visits

We offer a large variety of school trips, some which are essential to a particular course, some that broaden a student’s understanding of a given subject outside of the classroom and others which offer unique enrichment opportunities.

There are clear guidelines as to the different categories of trips and these are highlighted below.

Statutory trips

This trip forms part of a syllabus for a prescribed public examination that the pupils is being prepared for at a school e.g. Geography or Biology Fieldwork, Drama & English

Entirely Optional trips

This should be seen as a service, an opportunity to experience.  Please note that we cannot assist students financially for trips which take place wholly or mainly outside school hours and that are not part of the statutory curriculum provision, eg Ski Trip or Football Tour.

Trips taking place this academic year can be found within the Full Calendar section of the website.

For specific trip information please refer to college and subject pages which briefly outline proposed trips relating to a course.  The Educational Visits Coordinator Mrs Carmichael, will be available to give advice on payment plans, insurance and any other queries relating to trips (day, residential and international).
