Residential and Day Trips
Many students take part in residential or day trips as part of their studies. Students taking GCSE Geography have visited Snowdonia and undertaken fieldwork at the Olympic Park, Stratford and studied coastal erosion in Essex.
GCSE Art students have visited the Tate Modern and the Fitzwilliam Museum, GCSE Drama students get the chance to visit a theatre and write a review. Prior to Covid-19, GCSE French students have had the opportunity of a residential trip to a French language immersion centre in Normandy and GCSE Spanish students enjoyed a residential visit to Murcia. Members of the Symphonic Wind Orchestra have performed concert tours in Italy, Spain and Croatia. We hope to restart foreign trips during 2023 following government guidelines
