Throughout the academic year students have the opportunity to go on visits and field-work activities to enrich the work they are covering in the classroom. We arrange a variety of trips from national, regional and international ranging across all years.

Planning trips

For trips abroad students will need a current passport. They will also require an EHIC card.

The UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) lets you get state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. If you have a UK European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) it will be valid until the expiry date on the card. Once it expires, you’ll need to apply for a GHIC to replace it. GHIC and EHIC do not replace travel insurance.
You can apply online at:

We aim to keep all costs to a minimum and try to give as much notice as possible for payment of trips. Where possible we offer payment by instalments. Trips must be paid for online, please click here to visit our sQuid link for more information.

Please be aware that we have limited places on certain trips which are often offered on a first come first serve basis, so please ensure the reply slip is returned as soon as possible.

Ski Trip 2023

The reason we run a ski trip is because it offers an absolutely fantastic experience that in our
opinion is utterly unbeatable and among the best things you will ever do.

So take note of the directions in this booklet, get into a growth mindset, come along willing to
listen, learn and have a go, and we will all have a brilliant time out on the slopes.
