Educational Trips and Visits

DSC 0121We run lots of different trips and visits for students in all year groups.

Cultural trips to the theatre, art galleries and museums both in this country and abroad are organised reguarly and students have the opportunity to learn practical skills on educational visits to venues such as Wroxeter, Ironbridge and Betws-y-Coed. We also run a very successful French Exchange scheme.

Annually, in September, Year 7 students take part in a team building day at Edgmond Hall, which is a fantastic opportunity for new students to meet each other and make new friends. Year 12 students have the opportunity to go on the social and cultural weekend trip to London, which is always very popular.

Past trips have seen students skiing in Austria, learning about glaciers in Iceland and visiting museums and galleries in New York. The trips and visits available vary each year and with each student's subject choices, but we always aim to provide a wide range of educational visits to help support our varied curriculum.

Facilities

The main school buildings are red brick dating from the 1920s but have been added to over the years.

Facilities have been, and continue to be, developed to meet the changing needs of education.

In Summer 2011, a new food technology room, music room and recording studio and a languages suite were completed to a high specification.

Four additional classrooms and a new multipurpose hall have been constuced this year and are a fantastic addition to the school.
