Alton Towers – those students with 100% attendance throughout the year are taken to Alton Towers during the end of the summer term at a greatly subsidised rate.
Chateau Beaumont, France – The French department took a group of lower school pupils to Chateau Beaumont, Normandy during the May Half Term 2016. This is always a very popular trip with many fun activities and a chance to try frogs’ legs and snails.
