Adventurous & Overseas Visits

Running adventurous activities or travelling overseas are hugely beneficial ways of engaging children in learning and widening their horizons. They form a crucial part of student development, but, of course, they must be run safely.

The course should be only be taken after successful completion of the ‘Safe Visit Planning’ module.
