For non residential activities taking place during school hours, e.g. half or whole day visits, voluntary contributions will be sought from parents of participating pupils. Our Directors are in agreement that no child will be excluded because of inability to pay, but if there are insufficient funds, visits may not be able to go ahead. For children for whom we receive Pupil Premium, the Academy will provide a 20% subsidy for educational vists and extra curricular activities.
For non-residential activities taking place wholly or mainly outside school hours, such as a visit to the Theatre, the full cost will be charged to parents.
Wherever possible we like to give children first hand experiences as part of their studies.
Classes regularly go on educational visits to a variety of destinations.
