Forthcoming Overnight Trips

Each academic year, over 100 trips and expeditions take place which focus on academic, adventurous, cultural and sporting opportunities outside the confines of the classroom.  All year groups are involved; all corners of the globe are visited; and all provide unforgettable experiences.  Trips and expeditions are challenging and ambitious and are often one of the highlights of boys' memories of their school days: the camaraderie, the personal challenge and the enrichment mean that the value of such experiences is an intrinsic part of each boy's development.  Whether it is participating in adventurous expeditions in the Bavarian Alps or the Arctic Circle, performing concerts in cathedrals in Italy, playing rugby fixtures in South Africa or visiting Tunisia on a Classics Trip, boys have the opportunity to travel widely, ensuring that the classroom is only the catalyst for their education. 

These dates are accurate at the time of posting; however, please confirm with the member of staff in charge beforehand if you plan to base holidays around them. Those events in red occur during the school holidays.
