Trips and Events

There are many opportunities for pupils at different ages to extend their horizons with exciting trips both locally, and to far off venues on other continents. Although these change on an annual basis, it is fair to say that learning and enriching opportunities are available for all Battle Abbey students regardless of their age, interest or curriculum.

More active students have the opportunity to join the fantastically successful swim teams, who have travelled the country to represent the school or other sports teams and tours. Equally, the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme facilitates travel and adventure as does the ski trip.

More academic pursuits are also on offer, whether it is the Prep School chess competitions, History trips to Ypres and beyond or various field trips inherent in studying Business or Geography.

The prospect of visiting overseas to a distant land, participating on a self-funded expedition or experiencing first-hand an aspect that many students only study in a text-book offers students an enticing and enriching opportunity. This is very much in keeping with the holistic and wide-ranging options on offer to Battle Abbey students throughout their time at the school.
