The Governors and staff at Beverley High School recognise the importance of Educational Visits and additional activities. The knowledge and experience gained outside the classroom can consolidate and extend the curriculum and enhance the development of personal and social skills.
The School Mission statement states “As ‘Every Child Matters’ we will provide opportunities for inclusion and access to a stimulating environment.” Educational Visits and Activities assist in promoting this aim.
Visits take place across the whole of the school and, in the 6th Form, are run jointly with Beverley Grammar School. Visits take place locally, visiting venues in Beverley and the surrounding area and much further a field. Local visits include gathering information in Beverley Town Centre, visiting local Churches and a local farm. Previous successful visits include field trips, museums and the coast. Further afield visits have been made to the World War 1 Battlefields, Japan, Berlin, Sri Lanka and French trips. Ski holidays have been undertaken on a regular basis. Yearly visits to outdoor pursuit centres are undertaken.
It is the aim of the school for all pupils to be given the opportunity to take part in at least one residential visit during their time at the school. Visits which are an essential part of the curriculum will be available to all pupils concerned. Other visits which are an additional extra and an enhancement to the curriculum are supported and encouraged. In the event of a visit being over subscribed priority will be given as follows:
a. Curriculum (ie History GCSE pupils will have priority for Battlefields Trip)
b. In the event of a residential visit, those who have not previously been on a visit
c. In the event of an overseas visit, those who have not previously been on an overseas visit
d. A submission of interest will be sought in writing and if necessary names will be drawn out of a hat.
