Trips continue to play an important part in educating and developing students here at Calthorpe Park School, but as the school continues to grow, so too does the demand for places. The school’s priority is to ensure fairness of opportunity. However, with in excess of 250 students in most year groups, it is not always possible for every trip to accommodate every student. Therefore, we aim to offer multiple opportunities throughout a student’s time with us.
The trip process has been reviewed to provide greater clarity for parents, regarding both the way in which trips are organised and the implications and resulting commitments when applying for a place. Please read the Place Management Procedure for more details in the first instance or alternatively email: Trips@cps.hants.sch.uk.
The school operates six planned Trips Cycles each year, one per half-term. Most trips will ‘launch’ during one of these six cycles. Please see the diagrammatic representation of a sequence of events and dates below.
