We have a long and proud tradition of a wide variety of trips at St James’.
In their first weeks at St James’, all of our students in Year 7 spend the day with their Form to allow them to get to know and support one another. In September 2021, and previous years, this took place at Savio House.
In Year 8 & 9 students have the opportunity to attend a day retreat with their form groups. We use different retreat providers to make sure they have a fun time whilst exploring what their faith means to them.
In Year 8 all students are invited to visit either France, Germany or Spain. This affords them the opportunity to be immersed in a different culture as well as an opportunity to speak the language they are studying in school.
For Year 9 & 10 we offer the fantastic experience of visiting the World War I battlefields as well as laying wreaths and walking through the remains of trenches. Everyone who goes on this trip comments on what a moving experience this is.
In Year 10 we offer an annual ski trip and in alternate years a trip to Iceland. Iceland is a geographical paradise however, the trip is not limited to geographers.
We hope to be able to organise the following trips in the academic year 2021-22 and more information will be provided by the staff organising these trips:
