Yr 12 Trip to Rome

Tuesday 2nd April, 2019

Year 12 students have been on a school trip to Rome. This was a powerful and a positive teaching tool that helped enhance the social, personal and emotional development of all students.

 

For both pupils and staff, participating in a school trip abroad not only allowed us to have a fabulous and unique time in Rome, but they also benefited from many other advantages for weeks, indeed months, after their return to "normal life".
