AGS runs many school trips, both 'day' and residential. The day trips are principally, but not exclusively, subject related while the residential trips fall into three broad categories:

  • Subject specific and essential for the course (eg sixth form Geography field course)
  • Subject related but not compulsory (eg Psychology trip to Poland)
  • Non subject specific with degrees of 'optionality'. There are an increasing range of these from Bronze, Silver, Gold D of E, Y10 surfing in Newquay, ski trips to large-scale expeditions in, for example, South America.

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.
