Global adventures

As a school we are committed to create opportunities for students to have the chance to participate in immersive experiences in contrasting places across the world. Students will work in a team and take the lead to raise funds, plan the itinerary, set goals, and adopt leadership roles – both before and during the expedition. They will develop key life and leadership skills.

In July 2019, a group of students from different year groups completed three-week expedition to India (Himalaya & Rajasthan). They trekked for a week within the world's highest mountain range across the Hampta Pass, completed a collaborative community project with a trust supporting vulnerable women and children in Jodhpur and supported an elehapant sanctuary for rescued animals near Agra. They were fully immersed in the culture of the country visiting the Taj Mahal and Mahatma Gandhi's home in Delhi. As a group they collectively planned transport, accommodation and food while on the ground in India. This was so much more than a school trip.
