Throughout the Summer Term, students have enjoyed an array of enriching experiences with over 25 trips designed to broaden their horizons and enhance their learning outside the classroom.

Highlights have included, the annual Year 7 Residential Trip to Warwick and Birmingham, and Year 9 students embarked on their Residential Trip to Edale, immersing themselves in outdoor adventures and environmental studies.

Year 10 students showcased their resilience and teamwork by completing both the practice and qualifying Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Bronze Expeditions, demonstrating their readiness to take on challenges and develop new skills. The school’s commitment to providing diverse opportunities for all students was further exemplified by the success of our Year 9 VEX Robotics finalists, who had the extraordinary opportunity to compete in the World Championships held in Dallas, Texas.

Over the holidays, the music department and our talented musicians are setting off to Italy for the bi-annual music tour. This tour will allow them to perform in various prestigious venues but also to experience the rich cultural heritage of Italy. Simultaneously, Year 10 German students are also looking forward to enhancing their language skills and cultural understanding as they head for a week-long stay in Berlin.

Despite the busy exam season, academic departments ensured that the broader enrichment programme remained robust. Students attended numerous theatrical productions, including “A View from the Bridge,” “The Cherry Orchard,” and “A Long Day’s Journey into Night,” providing them with valuable insights into literature and drama. Additionally, girls had the opportunity to visit a variety of cultural and artistic exhibitions, including the British Museum’s Michelangelo and the National Gallery’s Caravaggio exhibitions, which deepened their appreciation of art history.

The enrichment did not stop there; students also attended conferences on cutting-edge topics such as sports and artificial intelligence, fostering a spirit of intellectual curiosity and innovation. A culinary trip to a local Chinese restaurant allowed students to explore different cuisines and cultural practices, rounding off a term filled with diverse and stimulating activities.
