Trips and Visits

There is an extensive enrichment programme of trips and visits at Bishop Stopford School. These enhance the taught curriculum, and enable students to develop as a person as well as academically.

Year 7

All Year 7 students have the opportunity to attend a five-day residential course in South Wales. They experience a variety of outdoor and adventurous activities such as caving, rock-climbing, hillwalking and orienteering.  The objective is to enable students to settle quickly into secondary school, to form strong relationships and develop resilience.
