Offsite Visits & Trips
At St Mary’s we believe that offsite visits are an important part of school life, and that they contribute significantly to student’s cultural capital, as well as providing opportunities to develop their social awareness and broaden their educational experiences.
Our aim is to provide every student with the opportunity to accompany at least one offsite visit per year. Students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of visits, from local area day trips to international residential visits.
