Events, Visits and Forms

At Gordon's we run a huge range of trips and visits for students of all age groups. These include curriculum-based visits such as a trip to the World War I Battlefields for Year 9 students, trips to France and Germany and attendance at a range of lectures designed to support examination groups. In addition, we also run activities of a more recreational nature such as an annual ski trip, Army Camp for members of the CCF, and expeditions at home and abroad as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
