Field Trips and External Visits


Scattered throughout the School year are a number of day and residential field trips which enhance understanding of theoretical concepts as well as encouraging our boys to be confident in new environments.

The boys make full use of the outstanding cultural opportunities available around the School. Over the years, they will visit a host of the museums, galleries and sites of historical or cultural interest in and around the Capital. These trips are embedded within the Curriculum and will often involve teaching and lectures from specialists.

From Middle School I the boys make residential trips. They have an adventure training week in Cornwall and an optional ski trip to Switzerland. From Middle School II, the boys go on several residential trips a year; Science and Geography field trips; Survival Skills training; Adventure training and, in Upper School II (10 years old), a French trip.
