Extra Curricular, Trips & Activities
Extra curricular activities, trips and visits are a vital part of our provision here at Stradbroke High School. As part of the ‘World Class Education’ we deliver to our students, we consider these enrichment activities to be of equal importance to our academic provision.
Extra-curricular activities and trips are essential for all students. The value of new experiences, new cultures, new people and new ideas is immeasurable for the development of the enquiring minds and critical thinking that we are so passionate about – their worth is well documented. We are proud of the beautiful, safe and welcoming rural location of our school but we are also aware that there is a need for students to experience other regions to ensure they have a well-rounded understanding of the world around them.
Recent enrichment opportunities have included:
- A residential football development tour in Europe
- A Ski-trip
- Regular trips to Cambridge University
- BT science and engineering lectures for KS4
