Trips and expeditions take place each term and we try to expose the boys to a wide variety of cultural, musical and sporting opportunities. There are academic excursions organised to bring life to subjects being taught in the classroom, whilst regular outings to museums, art galleries, the theatre and concerts are also arranged.
