Learning outside the classroom is just as important as learning within the classroom.
Students get more from their education if their experiences are active ones. Educational visits are a vital component of the Total Curriculum at Sutton Valence School, and all students have the opportunity to enrich and embed their understanding and learning beyond the classroom.
Exposure to extraordinary opportunities help to develop our pupils into balanced, interesting human beings displaying self-confidence without arrogance: individuals ready to take their places as leaders and contributors in society.
Most of our trips are educational visits and modern foreign language exchanges that link with the academic curriculum. However, many are trips linked with specific areas such as Sport, Music, Drama, CCF, Duke of Edinburgh and Model United Nations. Social and some cultural trips for the boarding community take place on Sundays, while the annual ski trip and Morocco expedition are immensely popular. Places on the biennial visit to Neerja Modi School in Jaipur, India fill up in days! Please see here for a sample of what has been and is on offer for our students.
