Trips and Visits

2018-2019

At St George’s School we believe in the importance of trips and visits. It is our opinion that a trip enriches a pupil and helps them to develop their understanding.  A trip often gives learning context and enables the pupil to understand a topic with greater perspective. Furthermore a residential trip enables a pupil to grow and develop as a person and gives them new opportunities and experiences and a greater understanding of life skills.

Below is a list of all the trips and visits that we have been able to offer in the academic Year 2018 – 2019 along with a few photos of select trips.
