Educational Visits

Why do we have School trips at Brandlehow?

Pupils can derive considerable educational benefit from taking part in trips. They have the opportunity to undergo experiences not available in the classroom; visits help to develop a pupil’s investigative skills and also encourage greater independence. Trips also provide pupils with knowledge and awareness of the world around them and encourage personal and social development. It provides opportunities for team building and co-operation. It also emphasises links between various areas of the curriculum and to put into practice skills learnt in the classroom.
