EVERY YEAR many tours and visits are organised by the school, to complement the curriculum or to provide other development opportunities and experiences.
Past trips have taken travellers as far afield as Turkey, Tanzania and China. The Classics department regularly organises tours to destinations such as Italy and Greece and the Modern Foreign Languages department has annual language visits (for example to France and Germany).
Sports tours are organised regularly; football teams have toured Spain and cricketers have travelled to Barbados.
