Throughout the year we arrange special learning and cultural trips to various places in the UK. The idea behind this is to help you use your new knowledge and skills in a "real" environment. All students feel comfortable and confident in the classroom, but we recognise using your new English language skills, on your own, for the first time can be daunting. Not everyone has the confidence to manage this. The trips are designed to encourage you to communicate with other similar students, in English, and to start to communicate with English people generally, whilst having the support of your teacher and others at the same time. The trips also give an introduction to English history and culture and are meant to be a fun day out.
