School Trips

School trips are a way of enhancing the learning process, by taking young people outside of their usual classroom environment and getting them to have a different learning experience. A school trip can be anything, from a trip into the local area to familiarise them, with the world around them; a place of interest of relevance to the subject that they are learning; or even somewhere abroad where they get to immerse themselves in a different culture.

Trips help build valuable life skills such as empathy and compassion, students have opportunities to work on relationships and communication which enhances social skills and ultimately their confidence.

School trips have vast benefits to the dynamic between teachers and their groups, with a huge majority of students feeling that experiences like these give their teachers a better idea of how they like to learn and the type of learner they are.

Research has also shown that trips can have a positive effect on students’ behaviour by putting students in an environment that is different and potentially far more stimulating.

Research also suggest that a school trip improves a child’s attendance, as it incentives them into more participation in the education process. By offering a method of learning that seems more engaging.

Taking students on a school trip to a relevant attraction or establishment that is related to the subject that is being discussed can also be a huge step towards helping them get a better grasp of the subject material. 

They are also extremely fun, and many happy memories and friendships are made that last forever.

With this in mind we plan to run a wide variety of school trips every year.

Please see below documents that outline trips for this year and approximate dates.

More trips will be added too.

Please note that the information is a guideline subject to change.

The member of staff leading the trip will write to parents prior to the trip with full details.

We want to ensure every student has access to as many trips and experiences as possible, therefore if you have any financial issues that would mean your child cannot participate in a trip, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will always try our best to ensure no student misses out.

If you have any questions regarding trips, please contact Mark Holding directly on mho@goffs.herts.sch.uk
