Often, some of the most memorable events for pupils during their time at St George's are the inspiring and exciting trips we organise.
There are a vast range of adventures and activities that compliment the curriculum and help to develop pupils’ teamwork, grit and resilience.
A number of day visits are organised throughout the year to further illuminate pupils' classroom studies. For example, The Art Department makes full use of the world-class galleries in London such as the V&A, and Classics pupils visit ancient sites in Bath and St Albans. We also organise exciting trips further afield including our biannual visit by the Sixth Form to Washington DC and the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, to get a taste of university life in America.
There are plenty of opportunities for girls to experience outdoor education. Every year group enjoys an excursion in September to help integrate the cohort at the start of a new academic year. The First Year girls spend a week in South Wales in June enjoying hill walking, climbing and canoeing amongst many other activities. All girls have the chance to go skiing on our biannual visit to the Alps. Students also go on practice and qualifying expeditions as they work towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards.
St George’s musicians and sportswomen take part in a number of tours. The girls in the Second and Third Year play in the GSA Condover Hall Netball Tournament, whilst older girls biannually venture to Paris for the event hosted at EuroDisney. Lacrosse tours are regularly organised, the most recent being a trip to the Netherlands and Germany. Members of the Chapel Choir travel to sing in stunning venues across Europe on their biannual tour.
