Trips

The School is committed to providing a rich and stimulating range of visits to broaden the education of the children. It is important to us that all students learn about the world by getting out of the classroom on occasions, to experience the world first-hand. Travelling overseas with the school gives your child a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience people, places and activities that could change their perspective and understanding forever.

Our trips range from skiing in the French Alps, to playing netball or cricket in Antigua, or visiting geothermal spas in Iceland. We prepare your child thoroughly before we go, and watch their independence and global understanding expand with every day they are away. They truly are a wonderful experience and a highlight of many pupils’ time at Belmont.

In the Summer Term we run an Activities Week where pupils take part in a totally different curriculum:

  • In Years 3, 4 and 5 your child will make camp fires, cook, take part in leadership activities, play golf, try archery, climb, go on treasure hunts and much more.
  • Year 6 create their own play from scratch and we’ll remember their performances of In Flanders Fields and A Night at the Comedy for many years.
  • Year 7 go on a Geography field trip to the Lake District, and Year 8 spend a week in Cornwall on a leadership and sports activity week.

Activities Week enables the children to take on new challenges and to learn more about themselves.

All our trips to museums and galleries, that are arranged as part of the curriculum, are included in the fee as are week-long residential trips in Year 7 and again in Year 8. Year 6 have a 4-day trip to France, which is subsidised by the School.
