Trips & Visits
At Roundwood Park School we offer our students the opportunity to take part in a wide range of visits, field trips and excursions which support national curriculum studies and extra-curricular activities. Trips and visits include short day trips to places of interest as well as multi-day residential trips within the UK, Europe or even further afield.
There are numerous one day trips to theatres, museums, art galleries and places of special interest such as the Ironbridge museum in Shropshire, where students explore the origins of Britain’s Industrial Revolution, or the National Space Centre, which gives pupils the opportunity to meet inspirational scientists from the UK space sector. Our multi-day residential trips take students to places across the UK as well as further afield like Geneva to see the CERN particle accelerator first-hand, Berlin to attend a street art workshop or to Iceland for an in depth insight into the country’s geography and economy.
All trips offered by Roundwood Park School are optional and designed to either complement in-class learning or enhance personal development. Whilst many trips allow students to experience the practical application of theory studied, others support personal research, however, some are just for fun.
In the autumn term, our new year 7 students are encouraged to participate in an adventure activity trip which aims to develop their team skills and encourages students to build new friendship groups. Towards the end of each academic year, the whole school is engaged in our wonderful ‘Enrichment Programme’ where lots of special activities are organised across the week, including day and residential trips, as well as onsite project work.
