This academic year trips and visits are operating in accordance with the Department of Education and Government Covid guidance. Students and staff have enjoyed being able to resume visits and are relishing the opportunity to expand their cultural capital. So far this year we have operated the following trips and visits allowing students to build on their education and embrace their areas of interest:
Raising Aspirations Trip – Year 11 and 12
This is an opportunity being run in conjunction with Anglia University supporting students with next steps, inspiring them to consider University as an option and teaching them valuable transferable skills to get them ready for life after school.
Students have taken part in trips to see productions of East is East and Hamilton in London. This has allowed students to immerse themselves in the theatre and to study both stage production and professional acting.
Our PE department continue to support students in their sporting endeavours. Students have taken part in sports fixtures against other schools in Essex in cricket, football, netball, rugby and cross country.
After having to delay due to Covid restrictions, our Year 11 from 2021 were able to celebrate reaching the end of their GCSEs in style at their delayed prom. Students had a fantastic night at Hylands House, where they caught up with friends and celebrated their achievements. The night was enjoyed by all who attended.
