Trips and expeditions

Learning shouldn’t be confined to a classroom. Venturing outside to explore the natural world is a great way for children to grow in confidence and to learn new life skills.

Wolverhampton Grammar School offers the largest range of trips, residentials, international expeditions and sport tours of any independent school in the area. Our overnight trips start from as young as Year 3. Residential stays allow children to develop greater independence and confidence. For many, a residential trip may be the first time a child has been away from home and we work closely with parents to ensure this is a positive and fun experience.


Opportunities for all

All students will have had the opportunity to participate in a residential. As children progress further through the Senior School and Sixth Form, the choice of trips grows even further with annual opportunities to stay overseas including a Ski Trip, French and German Exchange, French Work Experience, Battlefields Trip, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the annual international expedition.

The School supports a range of local and regional tourist and cultural attractions with organised trips and activities, including the Black Country Living Museum, Lapworth Museum and Warwick Castle.  Further afield, students have the opportunity to explore European destinations as well as annual expeditions offering the opportunity to volunteer and give back to an indigenous community.

Current students and parents can also find details of overseas trips on the Firefly Student and Parent Portals.

From weekly sports fixtures to Schools across the country to cultural tours of cities across the world – there really is something to suit everyone.
