Beyond the Classroom

Beyond the Classroom

Quite apart from the enrichment and extension opportunities provided by trips and visits, it is important that girls see the relevance of their learning in the wider world. To this end we organise a whole range of excursions to museums, conferences, castles, courts and art galleries. Girls take part in field trips for Geography and Biology, pond dipping at Mop End, pondering Roman ruins at Verulamium and travelling back to Tudor Times at Sulgrave Manor, to say nothing of discovering the delights of camping on our own Cedar Lawn.  In recent years our Physicists have gazed in wonder at the Hadrons collider at CERN and our linguists chatter away in France, Germany and Spain,  sports teams have travelled to South Africa for a combined netball tour and charity work. During the course of the coming year our Senior House girls will be singing in New York and our intrepid team of explorers are busying making preparations for their expedition to Zambia.  There is most definitely a world beyond St Mary’s and we aim to see as much of it as possible!
