Trips

At AGS we have a wide variety of residential trips - some standard 'fixtures' in the school calendar, some more of a 'one-off' nature.  All are dependent on having staff willing to organise them and, of course, parents willing to support them!

Regular trips include:

Y8 ski trip (Italy, France or Austria), c£1000, launched at the start of Y7

The intention is to offer a range of trips at different prices to suit all home financial circumstances.

Students are expected to behave as they would in school.  They are also expected to be prepared for trips in terms of the necessary skills, resilience and attitude.  The school reserves the right to not take students on trips who have demonstrated that they have not met the above requirements, either in school or on previous trips.  Where there is over-demand for a trip then staff reserve the right to use the above to create a waiting list.
