At Stratford upon Avon School, we value the importance of Educational Visits and their benefit to the development of our students. We believe that visits and activities off site enrich the curriculum and improve educational attainment by:
- complementing curriculum learning
- raising self-esteem and self-confidence
developing social skills
raising awareness of wider contexts
developing personal skills
supporting participation in healthy leisure activities
Off-site activities help to develop knowledge of the world and are a fun part of learning. Every child regardless of ethnicity, gender or ability has equal access to visits and off-site activities.
If your child is a student at the school, there will be a number of occasions when they are offered the chance of a residential experience, living and working with a group under professional supervision, gaining new perspectives on life, being stretched and tested while taking on new challenges. Students are informed about relevant upcoming trips via letters and emails home. Every year there are trips to different countries, as well as UK trips, days out, and local visits to theatres and galleries.
All organised activities are meticulously planned by our experienced staff to comply with specific Local Authority guidelines for offsite visits, thus ensuring that they are enjoyable, of maximum educational benefit and as safe as possible.
