Trips and Visits
School visits and trips offer every young person an experience beyond the classroom, an essential part of learning and development, whatever their age, ability or circumstance.
Some of the most memorable learning experiences help young people make sense of the world around us. By making links between feelings and learning, the experiences stay with us into adulthood, influencing our values and the decisions we make. These experiences allow us to transfer learning experienced outside into the classroom and vice versa.
Some potential outcomes of these experiences
- Social awareness
- Environmental awareness
- Activity skills
- Personal qualities
- Key skills
- Health and fitness
- Improved motivation and appetite for learning
- Broadened horizons

All school trips are covered by the comprehensive school insurance policy. Organisers pass on to the Educational Visits Co-ordinator details of all participants (staff and students), venues, dates and their Risk Assessment booklet.
Where professional organisations are used, they are suitably bonded e.g. ABTA or ATOL. Wherever possible at least one member of the supervisory staff has some form of First Aid training and First Aid kits are always carried. In addition to writing our own Manor School Sports College Risk Assessment, trip organisers obtain copies of Risk Assessments from commercial companies who run activities. Where possible, inspection visits are made in advance.
You can now pay for school trips via our online payment system, WisePay. You can find further information in the parents section of the website.
