Dates for trips

We are currently compiling the details for our full list of trips for the 2019-20 academic year, this will be updated as soon as it is available. The table of trips from the 2018-19 academic year will give you an indication of the types of trips that we run throughout the 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.
