It is important that learning goes beyond the school gates. Organised trips are an excellent way to give students interesting and unusual experiences, widening their horizons. For example: Geography field trips, Humanities trips to Italy and to Poland, water sports in Spain, English visits to theatres in Liverpool and Manchester, Art trips to the Lady Lever Art Gallery. Year 7 students have recently enjoyed team-building sessions and Year 11 students benefitted from revision trips to the Conway Centre on Anglesey. D&T Food students even had a trip to make chocolates in a chocolate factory.
