Closer to home, we make excellent use of the opportunities that Leicester and the surrounding area provides for exhibitions, productions, and days out. For example, Duxford Air Museum, Kenilworth Castle, Leeds Armouries, Cadbury’s World, Go ape, Stratford’s theatres, Loughborough University, The Space Centre and The Leicester Royal Infirmary, to name but a very few. In addition, our renowned sporting success sees our boys competing locally and nationally with trips all over the UK.

Aims of our trips and visits

  • To encourage every boy, outside of the classroom, to acquire the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to promote to the full his spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development
  • To encourage pupils to develop confidence, self-respect and a knowledge and understanding of other cultures and lifestyles, and to foster a growing sense of responsibility both within the school and in the wider community
  • To establish and maintain links with the wider community and, in particular, welcoming the help and support of our parents
  • To utilise every possible opportunity to enrich the experience of our boys by taking them to places many would otherwise never get to see
