Taking part in one of these journeys is an enriching experience for the intrepid Sixth Formers who choose to go. And, given the destinations and activities on offer, most of the travellers see the trip as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Students – and the teaching staff who travel with them – will experience cultures and territories that exist on the other side of the world. They’ll also face the physical challenge of long treks, camping out, and working together on projects that give something back to local communities.
The children will learn more about themselves – and others – and discover how to operate within a supportive group of like-minded individuals. Increased self-confidence, deeper friendships, and the acquisition of invaluable skills and wonderful experiences, are among the benefits of taking part.
These journeys take place every two years, during the summer holidays, and in recent years have taken pupils to: Borneo; Chile; Bolivia; Venezuela; China; Nepal; Peru; Tibet; Uganda; Namibia; Mount Everest and Morocco (Prep School).
