One of the most memorable aspects of a girl’s time in school is her participation in trips. Girls have lots of opportuntities for learning through educational visits and having visitors in school.
Girls enjoy a great variety of educational visits that are designed to supplement and enrich their classroom learning. Day trips start in Reception, when visits include Tropical Butterfly House in Sheffield and The Deep (Hull). Other trips for the younger girls include Skipton Castle, Wakefield Fire Station, Cliffe Ash Museum and the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Other trips which regularly enhance the curriculum for older girls include Cannon Hall, Meanwood Valley Urban Farm and Leeds Playhouse.
From Year 3, all girls enjoy a residential trip each year ranging from 1 to 4 nights. Year 3 visit York, Year 4 visit the Yorkshire Dales, Year 5 visit North Norfolk and Year 6 enjoy outdoors pursuits at Blencathra in the Lake District.Some years, the Junior School operates a Ski Trip, the most recent taking over 40 Year 6 girls to Austria.
Popular visitors to the school include, to name a few, The Animal Lady (from the Natural History Service), The Samba Bamba Man, Authors and Dr Mark’s 'Cool Science Show'.
