Each week, students go on a ‘Study-in-Action’ excursion, to a destination related to their chosen career.
Activities & Excursions
Days out of the school are split into two types: ‘excursions’ and ‘study-in-action days’. Excursions are a relaxed way for students to visit famous landmarks and attractions with the whole group. Study-in-action days are centred around the subject area and take the learning outside the classroom. Students visit destinations related to their subject that provide real-life experiences connecting practice and profession.
