Dates for trips

The school operates a broad range of trips, from hill walking days in Shropshire to expeditions abroad. Our provisional trip programme for the 2021-22 academic year can be viewed on our parent pages.

Below you can view the list of trips run in the 2018-19 academic year. Much of the time we operate similar trips each year and so this will give you a flavour of the types of trips that we run throughout the year.
