School Trips
The school organises regular educational field trips in line with the content of the teaching programme. These are visits to places of interest that complement the units of inquiry throughout the year.

Teaching and learning at the school empowers and encourages students to learn and understand the real world, to become lifelong learners, to be responsible towards themselves, other people and the environment, and to take appropriate actions.
Through the field trips programme we bring the real world into school and we expand the school into the lived environment.

The school plans around 5/6 trips per class per year and these include an extreme diversity of places of interest : museums, company plants, scientific laboratories, multimedia companies, art galleries, music and theatre events, farms, istitutional organisms etc.
