Our trips’ programme is structured so that we offer trips and excursions from Year 1 (age 5/6) and continues through to the Upper Sixth (Year 13).
We have trips to museums, galleries, science centres, outdoor education venues (treks), farms and educational weekends. In addition, the boarders have a full programme of excursions at the weekends – a mix of fun activities and occasional outdoor educational visits.
In Years 4 to 8 at the end of the school year all pupils take part in a Residential visit for up to six nights, including trips to Thailand, Indonesia and local venues.
Further up the College, we run more adventurous trips, to various places including Langkawi, Borneo, India, UK, Australia and USA. We also run field study trips as part of the IGCSE and IB Diploma Programme and regular sports trips including international competitions. In a recent trip to Phuket, Thailand our Shell pupils (Year 9) were lucky enough to train alongside the Dutch and Russian Olympic swimming teams as part of a sports and fitness week. The most adventurous of our trips are the expeditions as part of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. These are self-sufficient trips, with pupils navigating, cooking and camping after weeks or months of training. Our Bronze Award pupils take part in a local expedition, whilst our Silver Award pupils travel to Northern Thailand for an extended trek, through forest, caves and whitewater.
