Trips

The school organises many highly rewarding and life-changing trips in this country and abroad. 

Every two years, girls from the Sixth Form can take part in a World Challenge Trip which they plan and organise themselves. Last year the girls travelled to Myanmar whilst in 2014 they visited Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan trekking along the Silk Route wihlst in 2012 they climbed volcanoes in Nicaragua.  Previous World Challenge teams from Derby High visited Mongolia, Argentina and Mexico.  The World Challenge Expedition next year is to Mayanmar.

Sports tours to Malta took place in both 2016 and 2014 whilst in 2012 the girls went on a netball tour to Gibraltar.


During Activity Week (held each year near the end of the Summer term) there is a theatre and shopping trip to London held specifically for the Lower Sixth girls.

There is also a programme of visits to take advantage of learning in the wider context. There are regular trips to support learning in Science, Geography, Religious Studies and History and annual trips to France and Germany.
