Devizes School arranges a variety of school trips for students throughout the year. Each trip is designed to help them learn in a different environment while having fun and developing their social skills.
Spending time away from their desk on a school trip is a fantastic way for young people to experience a variety of exciting new situations. What’s more, they’ll be able to apply their learning in real-world contexts and develop skills – both social and academic – in a fun, safe environment.
Students will have the chance to see new things and learn about them in an active, holistic way. Our school trips are structured to bring learning to life and give students a sense of agency over what, and how, they learn. Students will absorb information and pick up on details that could only be presented in a textual or abstract way in the classroom.
Strengthening Social Ties
Our school trips are also designed to give students the opportunity to unwind, to be rewarded for their efforts and achievements, and to strengthen their social bonds with their peers.
Fun, memorable experiences held beyond the classroom will leave our students with a positive outlook on their education, and present important opportunities for them to demonstrate the skills and values they have learned in school.
Back in the classroom, these shared experiences can be called on to reinforce and energise their learning.
