Co-Curricular: Introduction

In addition to the clubs offered through the Outdoor Education Department, a wide variety of trips run throughout the year. By taking boys to new and interesting environments, the aim is to achieve as many of the following goals as possible:

  • To create a sense of teamwork within the group.
  • To expand and improve upon the skills acquired during weekly sessions.
  • To develop an awareness of the environment and our impact upon it.
  • To engender an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment.
  • To foster a love for travel and the outdoors.
  • To celebrate each other’s success and help everyone to improve.

We aim to introduce the boys to a wide range of activities and the following list gives a taste of the sorts of things that the boys have done in recent years.

  • Expeditions to Chile, Bolivia and Nepal
  • Surf trips within the UK and abroad
  • Mountain Biking in Wales and the French Alps
  • Wakeboarding within the UK and to Florida
  • Climbing in Portland and the Alps
  • Ski trips to Europe and the USA
  • Inter-school ski championships in the French Alps
  • Canyoning, Rafting and Coasteering in the UK and abroad
  • Cycling trips including Coast to Coast and a the Alps
