We offer a significant range of school trips as a way of enriching our curriculum: we see education outside the classroom as a key part of delivering a rounded education.
Whether it be through curriculum-enriching trips linked to a specific academic subject, or a month-long cultural experience as part of an expedition to a remote part of the globe, there is something for everyone at King’s.
Trips are a big part of school life and serve a variety of functions, from academic day trips to theatres and museums to residential trips. There are also a huge number of outdoor pursuits trips; the Duke of Edinburgh scheme; ski trips; sports tours, and finally there are expeditions, such as the recent expeditions to Bolivia, Morocco, India, Namibia and Norway.
