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 is the list of planned trips for the 2019-20 academic year. Please note that the list of trips may change and the cost of a trip is not fixed until the letter is sent out about it. It is possible that a few trips will be added to, or removed from, the list but we hope that this list will help parents in making decisions about trips in which they would like their sons to take part.
