Copleston High School

School Trips

In an academic year, trips are offered to students across the school. Some of our trips are residential such as the 1st World War Battlefields in Belgium, Water sports Activities in France as well as the Ski Trip. We also offer many theatre trips, museums, concerts and visits to places of interests.

We recognise the importance of safety and well-being of everyone when on such visits and have a rigorous process which has to be adhered to when students visit sites. This involves completing a parental consent form for each visit. It is important that this is completed in advance of each visit as circumstances do change and we must have accurate contact information.
