Middle School

Field trips are an integral component of the Middle School curriculum as we believe that students learn best when they have first hand experiences and are directly involved in seeing and doing things. Together with the residential trips outline below, students participate in other day trips throughout the year. The residential and day field trips are included in tuition fees.
