Biology and Geography courses include residential visits to field centres; there are Classics trips to ancient sites in Britain and abroad; the Art, German and History departments organise long-weekend visits to the continent. Recent Sixth Form trips have included visits to Amsterdam, Barcelona, Iceland, New York and Venice. Trips in 2011-2012 will include New York, Vienna, Rome and Sicily.

Charity Work & Community Service
As a school we feel it is important for our pupils? development that they are ready to help those less fortunate than themselves. Each form raises money for the school charity, which the girls choose by a whole-school vote. In addition there are many other one-off fund-raising initiatives in response to charity appeals throughout the school year. Girls in Year 10 undertake periods of Community Service such as working in local charity shops, primary schools or visiting the elderly, and many choose to continue this in the Sixth Form.
