School trips long-term
Each year the school offers approximately 150 school trips, ranging from a theatre visit in Birmingham to three weeks in a jungle. Each trip is aimed at specific age groups within the school. Many of our trips operate every year - please note that this list grows during the year and so is not fully complete as yet.
In the academic year 2014-15 we operated 159 trips, of which 35% were free and a further 38% cost less than £100. There were two trips costing more than £1000.
To help with planning, a list follows of the major school trips planned for 2016-2018. We do plan to continue with our full programme of UK-based trips in addition to these more expensive trips abroad. This list may change: the cost of trips is not fixed until the letter is sent out, and it is possible that a few trips will be added to, or removed from, the list. Nevertheless, we hope that this list will help parents in making decisions about trips in which they would like their son to take part.
The year groups refer to the year your son would be in when the trip takes place:
