Challenge and Opportunities

Here at The Park, we acknowledge and encourage learning beyond the classroom.

To support our core values and provide a wide range of opportunities and experiences, we offer students the opportunity to attend a number of residential activities during their time with us. An overnight stay, residentials or visits to another country, supports learning and enrichment.

There is an extensive programme at Park with a huge variety of impressive opportunities available to all students. From Year 7 through to Year 11, students can take advantage of the wonderful range of activities available to them.

  • Year 7 finish their first year with a 3 day trip to Barton Hall, Torquay for a fun filled three days of activities and adventure.
  • At the start of Year 10 students can go to Bude for four days of team building and adventurous activities.

These two residentials are run for the whole year group with all students encouraged to attend.

Students will also have the opportunity to visit a number of other countries with our fantastic range of residentials:

  • The school ski trip goes to Italy every Easter.
  • The Expressive Arts students visit London during Year 10.
  • The Geography/History department run a bi-annual trip to Sorrento, Italy.
  • The Maths department run a bi-annual trip to New York.
  • The Languages department run residential trips to Normandy (France), Barcelona (Spain) and Madrid (Spain).
  • We run an immersive experience to Uganda every two years, for a small group of students.
  • Philosophy and Theology staff run a trip to Poland.
