Trips

As a School we value the opportunities Educational Visits offer. Many staff take the chance to enhance the delivery of the curriculum through day trips and out of school activities.

Newcastle-under-Lyme School pupils have always travelled far and wide as part of their education. National and international residential visits are used to help teams bond, to help pupils to broaden their horizons and to allow staff to take the classroom into the wider world.
Below is an overview of residential trips based on current plans. Please note that a trip’s presence on this overview is not a guarantee that it will take place and that costings are estimates.
