We place great emphasis on providing a broad range of additional opportunities for pupils to develop their individual interests and passions.
In supporting and extending the curriculum, our school trips encourage and inspire our pupils to gain the skills and competencies necessary to fulfil their potential.
Pupils go on day trips from Foundation Stage through to Year 13, learning about local businesses, history, geography and art.
I think I will always look back on this trip as a bit of a pivotal turning point for my daughter who, though excited, was slightly anxious about camping away from home. It was all a new experience for her and she embraced it with such enthusiasm and comfort that I think it is safe to say she came home a mere 24 hours later more confident and self-assured.
Residential and Edventure Trips
Residential trips begin in Year 4 and 5, with pupils exploring and discovering all that Oman has to offer from Wadis to beaches, mountains and the desert.
Children experience a broad range of outdoor and adventurous activities on our Edventure trips, for Years 6-8, such as rock climbing, abseiling and a variety of problem solving challenges within Oman’s magnificent natural environment.
Students in Year 9 and above have the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (see below), the world’s leading youth achievement award.
We offer an extensive range of international residential trips each year.
Pupils have had the opportunity to explore Bahrain, Dubai, Qatar, Russia, China, Hong Kong, Berlin, London, Italy and New York in recent years enhancing their debating, performance skills, skiing, mathematics, geographical knowledge and much more. In addition, we offer a very popular annual Ski Trip for Senior students.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award.
The voluntary programme encourages personal discovery and growth, independence, perseverance and a responsibility to each student as well as their community. In other words, it develops the skills and personality that universities and future employers now expect.
We are very proud that over 80% of students in Year 9 choose to take part. The Award is open to Students aged 14-18 years and runs throughout Year 9 for Bronze, Year 10 and 11 for Silver and Years 12 and 13 for Gold. Students design their own Award programme, set their own goals and record their own progress. The Award requires students to complete four components: Service, Physical Recreation, Skill, Expedition (also known as the Adventurous Journey) and, for Gold only, an additional longer residential component.
