Learning Outside of the Classroom – Trips, Visits and Immersive Experiences

year 7 visit holy trinity church

On Tuesday 23rd January, Year 7 visited Holy Trinity Church to learn more about Places of Worship. Year 7 have started the ‘Journeys’ theme which includes learning about the religious journeys (pilgrimages) that take place in different religions. We did our own ‘journey’ as we walked to Holy Trinity Church and battled the difficult weather conditions!

We were welcomed at the church by Reverend Neil Robbie and his team of volunteers. Students had an opportunity to ask questions, look around the church and were shown what happens in a typical Sunday Service.

Students were particularly impressed by the beautiful stained glass windows which showed images from the Bible, such as ‘The Good Samaritan’.




year 10 geography field trip

On Tuesday last week, some of the Year 10 Geography students took part in their first field trip. They visited the local area to investigate how regeneration has impacted upon West Bromwich. They were fantastic with the data collection and then successfully applied their newly developed skills when back in the classroom. Well Done 10D!
