There are a large number of educational visits run at Stanborough. They are seen as an integral part of our offer to students at the school. These range from short local visits in the local area, to longer residential visits across the other side of the world and everything in between!
Educational visits allow learning to take place beyond the classroom. They allow students to learn in a different environment and probably in a very different way than they normally would do in school.
Some of the visits offered are an integral part of the curriculum and all students are expected to attend. Financial assistance can be provided for those parents who cannot afford the full cost of the visit. Other visits are optional and thus no financial assistance can be provided by the school. If you have any questions about financial assistance then you should speak to the school bursar.
Residential visits run across the year, but a large number run in the final week of the school year in enrichment week. We try to give parents as much warning as possible about a visit, especially if a payment is required.
Annual trips are arranged for Year 7 to PGL, this year in Spain, and to Cuffley Camp, Year 8 to Paris. Our GCSE geography students visit Norfolk and history students visit Normandy. There are also other visits which involve a number of year groups. This year this includes a spanish trip to Madrid for GCSE students, a psychology trip to Krakow, a music trip to Luxembourg and there is also a ski trip to Italy. Our robotics team compete across the country and visit the USA each year to complete with great success!
