Trips and Visits
Trips give students the opportunity to visit new places, participate in new activities and develop new friendships with their peers.
Trips offer students the chance to broaden their horizons and knowledge, and consolidate learning in a way directly related to the real world.
Students visit former industrial areas to learn about urban regeneration and inner city redevelopment. This contributes to their coursework and provides students with a greater geographical and historical understanding of important areas of London.
Frylands Outdoor Activity Centre (October)
Our annual trip to Frylands focuses on outdoor adventure, managed in a way which encourages and enables young people to enjoy and experience the benefits of the natural environment.
Students have the opportunity to develop their team building skills while overcoming obstacles (both physically and mentally) and in the process, build confidence and become more resilient.
This is a fantastic opportunity for Year 7 students to create friendships at the start of their journey through secondary education.
