Enrichment trips have long been a highly anticipated and memorable part of life at Churston. From a Year 7 residential to an adventurous overseas expedition, we recognise the huge value that a residential trip can bring to a young person. Personal development through specific challenges, and the generic experience of travel with friends underpin the great memories formed.
Post-pandemic our programme has relaunched with a new focus in line with our school principles – sustainability, active citizenship and social justice. Each trip launched has been carefully considered as to the opportunities for personal development, learning and experience under one or more of these principles, whilst ensuring our duty of care and providing an effective, enjoyable and safe trip each time. This means that while many of the traditional favourites are able to remain on our programme, some may have a different feel – for example flying short haul rather than long-haul for a cultural experience, or exploring more local and national options than we have previously.
