Dates for trips

The school operates a broad range of trips, from hill walking days in Shropshire to expeditions abroad. Our trips programme is suspended at present but we look forward to planning more exciting excursions in the 2020-21 academic year.

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.
