Trips and Visits

Broadening the student experience

We recognise that educational visits play a significant part in the development of young people, adding to many aspects of the curriculum and broadening their experiences. All visits are correctly planned, managed and conducted whilst having  minimum disruption to learning.  All trips and visits uphold the Catholic ethos and values of the school.
