Trips & Visits Calendar

Educational visits are an integral part of the learning experience for pupils at St Wilfrids Academy. Trips can clarify and enhance the activities which take place in the classroom, both socially and educationally, in a number of ways:

  • By providing new physical and mental challenges, giving pupils the opportunity to develop their independence, leadership skills and confidence.

  • By providing opportunities to clarify pupils’ understanding of areas of the curriculum by showing the material studied in a new context.

  • By allowing pupils to develop stronger relationships with fellow pupils and with staff through an enjoyable experience.
St Wilfrids seeks to encourage participation in educational visits in the contexts set out above. Pupils, parents and staff are made aware of the procedures relating to school visits and the trips are executed safely, with due regard to care of the pupils. 
All our Students and their Parents are asked to complete a rolling consent form to cover our weekly planned enrichment trips for the academic year. For non local and trips further afield we will still ask for additional permission.
