Visits, visitors and events
Taking learning beyond the classroom
Years 7 and 8 have visited the World War I battlefield of Ypres, which proved a most thought-provoking and humbling event. The children were able to empathise with the life of a soldier during the war and found a visit to the Menin Gate a poignant experience. Other recent activities have include trips to national theatre productions and exhibitions, while further afield, cultural visits to France and Italy are regular fixtures in the school’s calendar. In 2017 48 pupils from the Prep School enjoyed an incredible trip to Iceland.
Annual events such as Science Week provide an exciting way to raise the profile of a key subject. Creative Arts Week focuses on a single theme, to provide the inspiration for a wealth of activities.
