Trips and Events
There are many opportunities for pupils at different ages to extend their horizons with exciting trips both locally, and to far off venues on other continents.
Field work in Geography and History take students out of school to explore a variety of locations from local sites to Northumbrian castles. Most years see two residential trips to France and Germany for different groups.
Economics trips to New York, Prague and Hong Kong, Art History trips to Paris, Aid projects in Kenya, all form part of the exciting variety of trips available to pupils at this school.
Pupils are made aware of local and global events beyond the school with regular fund raising events. Money is raised for our Kenyan projects working in remote and desperately poor schools. We also currently support street child rescue in Goa and both the Prep School and Senior School raise significant amounts of money each year for this important cause.
Our pupils have learned that not everyone in the world is as lucky as they are and that giving time, effort, money or all three, to help others is a very enriching experience.
