We have a long and proud tradition of a wide variety of trips at St James’.
In their first weeks at St James’, all our students in Year 7 spend the day with their Form and we hope this will take place at Savio House in September 2021.
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:
