At Eaton Bank we run a series of school trips which enhance students’ experiences and build students’ social and cultural understanding of the wider world. These opportunities help to bring subjects to life, instilling a passion for the subject for our students.

Many of these trips, such as our Geography Fieldwork or Theatre  trips link directly to the academic curriculum, whilst others provide subject specific or more general enrichment.

Our overseas trips including the History trip to Normandy, the New York trip focused on Performing Arts or the Ski Trip provide students with the most memorable moments of their school experience. We consistently seek to diversify our range of opportunities offered to students, whilst ensuring that these trips are accessible to all students.

These trips build students’ skills, encouraging confidence, independence and self-organisation. The aim is that these trips inspire and motivate students, whilst encouraging positive attitudes and reinforcing the school values. Finally, these build cultural capital and provide experiences which extend learning beyond the classroom.
