Expeditions

During the year, there are a wide variety of educational visits available to the scholars. These range from local visits within lesson time to nearby places of interest, to residential activities further afield.  As an academy we are fully committed to developing character as well as academic excellence, our expeditions is one of the ways be ensure scholars are fully ready to lead a happy and successful life. 

Learning outside the classroom compliments knowledge and understanding learnt inside the classroom.  Most of our ‘schools’ take scholars on field visits and residentials.  The School of Humanities takes our GCSE Geographers to the coast to meet and exceed the requirements of the GCSE Specification, whilst the School of Arts takes scholars to exhibitions and performances to develop their love for the arts and build cultural capital.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is available to all scholars and we are currently running all three awards.  We have a nominated Coordinator in the academy who oversees the awards.  The award, is a nationally recognised qualification and develops scholars confidence and encourages them to give something back to the community through the volunteering element of the award. 

Families will always be given reasonable advance notice of visits and will be informed which visits are compulsory and which are optional. If a visit takes place within the normal academy day and within a 3 mile radius of the academy, then we will inform families of the visit by text or a note in their child’s planner.

As part of the academy life and the National Curriculum, all scholars must take part in and experience a variety of outdoor activities. During Years 7 and 8, a residential activity will take place and every scholar must participate in these experiences.
