Extending the Boundaries of Learning
At Linton Village College, we believe in broadening young people’s horizons by taking them out to explore the wider world. It is our aim that all students should have the opportunity while they are with us to visit the theatre, go to a concert, visit an art gallery, try out a new sport, do some community service, travel abroad and sleep in a tent. Our students remember their school trips for the rest of their lives and look back on them as some of the fondest memories of their time at LVC.
All educational visits are planned in accordance with OEAP National Guidance (www.oeapng.info) and use the Evolve system. Educational visits are overseen by the College’s Educational Visits Coordinator (EVC).
All students in Years 7 to 9 take part in an Enrichment Week during the summer term. In 2019, Year 7 students had a varied programme that included a forensic science murder mystery, multi sports along with off-site visits to the Planetarium, Greenwich and IWM Duxford. Year 8 had a programme that included a day based on promoting teamwork in the style of Dragon’s Den, a day exploring the music industry and a visit to Thorpe Park. Year 9 students have a choice of residential trips including water sports in Devon, a cultural visit to London and outdoor activities in the Peak District.
