You'll like our ADVENTUROUS and OPEN MINDED outlook

Our exciting Trips programme reflects our open-minded and adventurous outlook and helps to develop the confidence, character and resourcefulness our students are known for.  Over recent years, Wakefield Girls’ have been spotted at fascinating and fun opportunities close to home as well as further afield:

  • Year 4 were heard from the top of Gordale Scar, as part of a team building residential
  • Eating pizza in Herculaneum before exploring the archaeological site
  • In Rome, during one of a couple of Classics trips offered this year
  • At The Millenium and Graves Galleries, as part of an Art trip
  • Enjoying a paella in Salamanca, a bratwurst in Koblenz, or a croissant in a cafe in Paris
  • Exploring beyond the History curriculum in our ancient city of York

Sports and Music tours and Academic Tournaments add more destinations to the mix.

..and the way we ENRICH learning

Our wealth of educational visits and residential trips enriches learning beyond the curriculum for students in all year groups.

All of our Junior girls in years 3 – 6 enjoy action packed residential trips which progressively develop important team building skills and healthy friendships.  In Year 7, typically when they are joined by students from other primary schools, we help everyone quickly build friendships and understanding with an activities week at our chosen field centre.

Opportunities for wider national and international travel and study begin from year 7.  Our Trips programme includes music trips, a world sports tour, ski-ing in Italy and cultural visits to Pompeii, Paris, Valence, Nice, Salamanca, Koblenz and New York.

A highlight for students in years 11 – 13  is our epic expedition which has previously included Madagascar, Tanzania, Romania and Costa Rica.
