Broadening Horizons

The curriculum is enhanced for all girls throughout the year with a well balanced programme of school visits and workshops.

Girls are given the opportunity to participate in National competitions, Summer schools and sporting events and regular visits to the school allotment are also used to extend the girls' studies in a variety of subjects.

As the girls get older they begin to travel further afield for their school visits. In Year 4 the girls travel to London to spend a day aboard the Golden Hinde, Frances Drake's ship, where they become cabin boys, officers or barber surgeons to experience life as Tudor sailors.

Next comes the opportunity for residential visits. Girls in Year 5 spend a week at the Cranedale Field Studies Centre, in Yorkshire, to extend their Science and Geography skills. France is the destination for the Year 6 girls who have the chance to study French culture and some adventure activities.
