We regularly look for opportunities to provide experiences for our students that expose them to the wider world and what connections can be made around the globe.

There are a range of opportunities available to girls, primarily in the Secondary School, at different times through their educational journey. These include language and cultural exchange experiences with sister schools in countries such as England and France, discipline specific overseas tours that enhance work in the classroom such as History tours to Germany and Italy, Social Sciences tours to China or Science trips to NASA.

The table below provides preliminary information about the global opportunities planned for Secondary students in different year groups over 2020 and 2021. Each opportunity will be confirmed closer to the date, depending on the level of student interest, travel and health/safety warnings, visa arrangements and other important travel considerations.
