Educational Offsite Visits

For many of our students their appetite for learning is further supported through Cultural Capital programmes that widen student experiences which research has shown impacts on learning within the classroom and career choices. Widening student experiences happens through our comprehensive extra-curricular timetable as well as UK based fieldwork in subjects such as Geography, Science and the Arts. Students have opportunities to visit theatres and museums, an outdoor residential trip in Year 7 as well as international trips, most recently to Iceland, Belgium and Poland.

  • Recent trips that have been enjoyed by LHA students include;
  • Residential outdoor activity trip to The Anderton Centre
