We believe that the value of educational visits can never be underestimated.
A wide range of trips are undertaken each year across the school. In the EYFS, regular short trips around the locality are carried out on foot, including visiting the post box to visiting Waitrose supermarket.
Trips to London for our Form I class has included the British Museum and the Museum of London for Form II. There are also trips with a historical theme for Form III who visit Verulamium Park and Welwyn Baths, whilst Form VI visit Buckingham Palace in September to complement the topic on The Victorians. There are several trips which complement the RE curriculum, including Bushey Synagogue, Backtivedanta Manor and St Albans Abbey.
Two residential trips are undertaken. In Form V a three day trip is made to North Yorkshire where the class stay in The Cranedale Centre in Kirby Grindalythe, near Malton. They visit the beach, explore the moorland and enjoy a whole range of practical and physical challenges.
The highlight of Form VI is the trip to France. The girls are very fortunate to spend six days in Normandy, sampling local cuisine and speaking almost entirely in French. The class stay in a Chateau and experience their first taste of independence.
The academic year concludes with Activity Week, a themed series of activities which includes a trip for Nursery to Form VI. Themes in recent years have included The Tudors, The Olympic Games, celebrating our building and Shakespeare.
