Trips and visits overview 2019-20

There are many opportunities to go on a variety of trips.  These range from a Geography visit to the Sussex coast, to visiting China.  Many pupils really enjoy going away with their friends.  A number of the trips take place during Activities Week, which occurs in July.  In addition to trips, we also run the Duke of Edinburgh Award.  We offer a wide variety of local, national and international trips.
