Trips and Visits

As part of St Ambrose College's delivery of the national curriculum, students are often invited to participate in school trips to further develop their understanding in a particular subject area.  In addition to these educational visits, the school also organises a wide variety of extra curricular activities to promote personal growth for our students.

The College runs a comprehensive programme of day and overnight trips which aim to extend and enrich the Academic and Co-Curricular experiences of the pupils. Below, you will find lists of recently completed and proposed extra curricular trips and residential visits that the College has invited students to attend.  Parents may wish to use the information for future financial planning for your child and we also hope that parents wishing to enrol their child at our school will have a more detailed overview of the opportunities on offer.

In addition to the many outdoor expeditions and activities on offer, individual departments run a wide variety of educational trips to augment classroom experiences.
