We support school trips because we believe that by drawing on connections from real-world and real-life experiences, the curriculum becomes more relevant for our learners and enables the development of knowledge, skills, and understanding.
We are firmly committed to an interdisciplinary approach to learning. We believe this enriches the curriculum and allows our learners to make connections between their work.
This is also an approach that better allows the school to fulfill its commitment to meet the individual needs of all our students, and empowers teachers to be imaginative and innovative in their daily practice.
In the Early Years, the focus is on learning through play. Young learners are invited to discover the world around them at learning stations that focus on different areas of the curriculum and aid their physical and social development.
In Primary school, curricular areas are integrated meaningfully into a widely embracing themes. Themes tend to focus on an area of the curriculum such as Humanities or Science but English skills are at the heart of every theme.
School Trips and Educational Visits
Off-site visits are incorporated into the curriculum to enhance student learning. When students are off-site, behaviour expectations are particularly high. An email is sent to parents in advance of the trip indicating what materials or clothing might be required.
Transport and admissions charges are usually not included in the school tuition fees. Information about the trip will also indicate the expected timings, arrangements for transportation and dress code (normally uniform, but other clothing may be more appropriate depending on the activity).
A trip leader will be identified, and their contact details shared with parents for each trip.
