At Belvidere we offer our students a wide range of residential visits and exciting trips that extend learning beyond the classroom. These include day trips and residential trips in the UK and beyond. There is something on offer for everyone and you will find an overview of the trips and visits we currently offer along with the approximate cost below. Our students and staff always make positive comments about each trip having had a fun educational experience. Examples of our day trips include visits to the theatre, art galleries, places of worship and our annual Year 7 castles trip.
All of our visits meet the strict Local Authority criteria regarding health, safety and supervision ratios.
In addition to the residential trips we also offer a wide range of day visits to take learning beyond the classroom. Examples of this are theatre visits, art galleries, places of worship, castles that are linked to the students’ respective houses and sporting fixtures.
Should you have any queries regarding educational trips and visits please contact our Educational Visits Coordinator, Miss Revell
