For many of our students over the past 40+ years who have gone above and beyond to complete all five…
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.
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.
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.
