Forest Hill School has a strong commitment to the added value of learning beyond the school day and beyond the school premises. Each year the school arranges a number of activities that take place off the school site and/or out of school hours, which support the aims of the school.
The variety of visits and experiences available may differ depending on the year group or the subjects being studied. Museums and theatres feature prominently on our trips’ schedule and we also host visits from authors, theatre companies and other professionals.
Residential trips are a key part of the National Curriculum. They enable teachers to enhance students’ classroom learning, adding opportunities students may not otherwise have, particularly in the case of urban schools like Forest Hill where children have limited access to natural outdoor environments in their day to day learning.
Residential trips are also a great bonding experience, which is why we take all Year 7 students away for a few days during their first term at Forest Hill.
Examples of other trips regularly taken by the school include Geography trips to Iceland and Sicily (Year 8/9), French trips to Paris (Year 8/9), History/German trips to Berlin (Year 10/12), Skiing trips, and GCSE revision trips to the Kingswood Activity Centre in Kent (Year 11)
