Trips and Visits at John Hanson

Trips at school will become the life-long memories for our students.  They are an essential part of our ethos at John Hanson.  Trips, both day trips and residential course provide the essential life skills and the cultural capital to ensure students have the opportunity to experience a broad and balanced curriculum. 

John Hanson provide multiple opportunities for every year group to attend day trips (to deepen passion for a particular subject or for team building etc) or much longer residential trips – many of which are to international locations.  For example, in Year 7 there is 5 day residential to Osmington Bay and a Science trip to the Natural History Museum through to the opportunity to visit New York in Year 10 or even go on a month-long expedition to Borneo during the summer. 

The school has tried to very hard to drive costs down for all trips, day trips are usually cost around £25 to £40 depending on the activity and residentials can cost from £150 to over £1000.  The school appreciates that you will not be able to send your son/daughter on all our trips but have provided an overview of the trips that are usually run for each year group and how much they cost in order to you to plan ahead.  If your child qualifies for Pupil Premium funding please do contact the school to see how we can help with support towards the cost.   Below is an overview of the main trips run in each year group.   The list is not exhaustive because we run a number of additional sport and subject day trips every year.
