Years 7-11 Students

TRIPS & VISITS

Broadening Horizons

Our students' academic life is enriched by a wide range of opportunities in which they explore and enjoy the world around them.

Memories to last a lifetime

Educational trips enhance studies beyond the classroom, making learning enjoyable and relevant. Humanities run popular excursions to Iceland, Munich and the Belgium Battlefields. Foreign exchanges take place with schools in Coutances (Normandy) and Madrid. Sporting experiences range from visiting Wimbledon, netball and rugby tours and skiing in Europe or America. Equally, there is the opportunity to take advantage of the various theatre, art and fieldwork trips.

'There are so many different activities you can do in the Lakes - there's something for everyone. being challenged in an outdoor setting means you get to learn more about your potential and that of others.' Year 10 student

Enrichment trips and visits are an important and memorable part of education. They can enhance learning, enable students to grow in self-confidence and independence and allow them the chance to show leadership and teamwork skills. At Ilkley Grammar School we aim to provide our students with a variety of experiences throughout their time with us.

We strive to accommodate as many pupils as possible onto trips. In the event of the trip being oversubscribed we will endeavour to increase the capacity of a trip however this is not always possible due to staffing, accommodation, transport etc. Unless otherwise stated on the trip letter all places are allocated in a random draw. There are some trips which are designed for pupils who study certain subjects and therefore they may get priority places. Each trip is independent of other trips and if a student is not successful gaining a place on one trip it does not therefore give them priority on another trip.

We are continually reviewing the trips and visits offer in light of the current financial climate and actively looking to increase the range of opportunities available. We ensure that the prices of trips are competitive with other providers to get maximum value for money. All providers and tour operators satisfy and meet the requirements as per the local authority guidelines. Students in receipt of Pupil Premium or the Post-16 Bursary can request support on some of these trips. Support can also be requested from the PTA Hardship Fund.
