Every year, a considerable number of trips out of school take place. Some are annual, some operate every two or three years, and some are ‘one-off’ ventures. Most are linked to departmental activities: for example, visits to France or Germany, or exploring the landscape of Iceland; some are sport-related tours; others involve outward-bound type work, sometimes with a community work element.

Trips and expeditions which are regularly scheduled include Blakerston Camps, Duke of Edinburgh Awardassessments, First Form activities camp at Loch Insh, Third Form to Normandy, rugby tours in the UK and abroad, Ski trip, CCF Camps, visit to Cologne, China trip and exchange to Zhuhai.

This is in addition to field trips in subjects such as Geography and Biology.

Work rebuilding a school was undertaken on a summer expedition to Fiji.
