Inspiring a love of learning

“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher


Aims and Objectives

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 Vision Statement states “Beverley High School - inspiring individuals with a love of learning will provide experiences which are positive, enjoyable, enriching and memorable”.  Educational Visits and Activities assist in promoting this aim.

Types of Visits

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 visiting local Churches and local colleges.  Previous successful visits include field trips, museums and the coast.  Further afield visits have been made to the World War 1 Battlefields,  Japan, Sri Lanka, French and German trips.  Ski holidays have been undertaken on a regular basis.  Yearly visits to outdoor pursuit centres are undertaken.

Further Information

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:

  1. Curriculum (ie History GCSE pupils will have priority for a History linked visit)
  2. In the event of a residential visit, those who have not previously been on a visit
  3. In the event of an overseas visit, those who have not previously been on an overseas visit
  4. A submission of interest will be sought in writing and if necessary names will be drawn out of a hat.
