Outings & Trips

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 include the British Museum, Museum of London, National Gallery and Kew.  There are also trips with a historical theme for Form III who visit Verulamium Park and Welwyn Baths, whilst Form VI visit Windsor Castle to complement the topic on The Victorians.  There are several trips which enhance the RE curriculum, including Bushey Synagogue, Bhaktivedanta Manor and St Albans Abbey.

Two residential trips are currently undertaken.  In Form V a four 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 have included The Tudors, The Olympic Games, Shakespeare and Roald Dahl.
