Trips and Visits
Educational visits and trips are for many people the best remembered part of their school days. At Notre Dame we strive to ensure that our girls have many opportunities to create memories which will last them a life time. In our view educational visits have a hugely beneficial impact on the learning of our girls. By taking the learning beyond the classroom our students have the opportunity to experience rather than just read or hear about what they study.
These tend to be day trips to venues such as:
Junior girls experience a wide variety of day trips including:
- Art Galleries
- Outdoor Learning Centres
- Theatre Workshops
Residential trips such as our adventure holidays and ski trips helps generate the strong community spirit which exists within Notre Dame.
Year 3 experience their first overnight trip to Hindleap Warren in East Sussex during the Summer Term.
Year 4 begin head to Ufton Court in Reading for a two night Tudor experience.
Year 5 and 6 spend a week in Jersey on a Sports and Culture Tour and also have the opportunity to go on the Easter Ski Trip to Austria
The health and safety of our girls is always at the forefront of our minds when planning an off-site visit. This is why we have a robust risk assessment procedure which is followed for all our trips and parents are fully informed by letter before any such visit takes place. To provide further reassurance we communicate regularly with our parents through our Notre Dame Twitter account which posts pictures and updates throughout the visit. @NotreDame_Trips
