2016/2017 Annual trip information

Educational visits help us to enhance, develop and extend our curriculum. They provide an invaluable resource which enables our students to learn from a wide range of experiences. Our wish is for all our students to partake in a number of visits each year.

AIMS AND PURPOSES OF EDUCATIONAL VISITS

The academy has a strong commitment to the added value of learning outside the classroom and beyond the school premises. We seek to provide a broad and balanced range of learning outside the classroom opportunities for all our students.

Each year we arrange a number of activities that take place off the academy site and out of school hours, which support the aims of the academy. The range of activities includes:

  • Out of hours clubs (music, drama, art, science, sport, homework, etc)
  • Academy sports teams
  • Regular local visits (places of worship, swimming, other local amenities)
  • Day visits for particular groups
  • Residential visits
  • Overseas visits
  • Adventurous activities.

We are pleased to share with you the following data:
