Trips- Residential and Abroad

Grey Court School is proud of its tradition of offering students a full programme of visits and trips.


 

Every year, year 9 and 10 students are invited to take part in the Spanish Exchange to Barcelona. Ski trips are organised once every two years- the next ski trip is taking place in February 2016. In Years 9 and 10, students have an opportunity to go on school exchanges to France and Spain.  For students studying  French , there is the annual visit to our partner school in Lille and the Lille Xmas market.
 
This year, we are very excited to have introduced a Year 11 trip to Berlin, during which students will explore the History of  the Cold War. As part of the Year 7 Summer activity week, year 7 students spend  a day in  Boulogne, France, whilst year 8 and 9 students have the chance to go on a residential activity  based trip.
 
In addition all students during their time at Grey Court will take part in a number of field trips and museum visits which help to further enhance the school curriculum.

Year 7  July trip to Boulogne-Sur-Mer-

 

 

In July, as part of the Summer Activities week, Year 7 students have the opportunity to practise their French in the historic town of Boulogne-Sur-Mer. The day starts early with a coach ride from Grey Court to Folkestone. Students then travel by the Shuttle to Calais and afterwards move on to Boulogne. They visit a local sweet factory, where they are given demonstrations and can learn how to make sweets. In addition, they have to complete a range of language based activities in the centre of the Old Town.   "I really enjoyed the trip to France and the chance to practise my French.   It was a really long day, but I had fun with my friends. My favourite bit was in the sweet factory because we got to try the sweets at the end." ( a year 7 )
