Trips and Visits

2017-2018

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 2017 – 2018 along with a few photos of select trips.

Above are all the trips that have run this year which involve a charge to help you with future planning. Please be aware, however that trips and visits are subject to change and we are regularly reviewing what can be offered and the most effective options of enhancing the education of all pupils at the school

Please be aware that there are local charities and a Trust, which may offer a bursary to help with the cost of a school trip.
