Educational Visits

The College runs a comprehensive programme of day and overnight trips which aim to extend and enrich the Academic and Co-Curricular experiences of the pupils.

In term time there are trips to University departments, Museums, Theatres and Cinemas and a varied programme of largely ‘fun’ House trips. The House trips are usually aimed at one year group and it is hoped that all of the year group will attend. They greatly aid the bonding and settling process.

The Outdoor Activities Department run a number of adventure weekends which are open to all pupils. Recent trips include Climbing in North Wales, Moutainbiking in mid Wales and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Training in Brecon Beacons. Each year the Shell has an Outdoor Activities Week in June; the vast majority of the 16 Houses stay in the Brecon Beacons.

In the holidays the College runs a number of foreign trips; recent examples include:
