Our Visits Programme

We believe that all of our students should visit museums, musicals, plays, sporting events and, wherever possible, foreign countries. It is only by seeing the world around us first hand that our students truly experience life and culture, and learn from it.

Going to London to see The Lion King was the best! I really enjoyed learning a dance from The Lion King…It was great how we learnt the routine in different stages, and even better to [later] see our dance instructor live in the performance!

Experiencing Culture

Every department within our school offers a range of educational visits and trips. There is a huge variety of visits; they vary from business studies trips to local businesses, right up to charitable projects on the other side of the world. Inbetween, there is an outstanding array of visits to museums, shows and important geographical sites.

Everyone should have good memories of school visits

They enrich learning and, when carefully planned as part of our overall curriculum, enchance the education of our pupils. Our programme, far from being expensive, is always planned so affordability is kept in mind.

Affordability: school should be for everyone, trips included.

We always keep costs in mind; we are also developing a calendar of visits for the duration of students’ time at the academy so families can think carefully about the opportunities they would like students to experience. Some of our visits are heavily subsidised; as an example, a number of students travel on five-day exchange visits to European countries for around £40 through our participation in the Comenius project. For students who are eligible for free school meals, support with the cost of visits is also available.


The school has strong international links and offers an impressive range of visits in this country and abroad.
