A key element of RGS Worcester’s co-curricular education is making learning accessible and an experience. A key way in which we promote this is through the diverse range of trips and expeditions on offer for each pupil.
“Our pupils learn resilience and self-sufficiency”
Our pupils learn resilience and self-sufficiency as they take on physical challenges and experience the outdoors in weekend expeditions from the Malverns or North Wales to sea-kayaking in the Shetlands or Sweden and trekking in the Himalayas. Our CCF contingents develop their leadership and technical skills, for example, learning fire-fighting at HMS Excellent, flying at RAF Cosford or learning tactical thought processes at numerous army camps.
Our sports teams regularly tour to UK, European and global destinations. Playing against teams from other countries makes a huge impact on our own sport and experiencing different cultures is eye-opening and memorable. In recent years, boys’ and girls’ teams have toured to Paris, South America, New Zealand, South Africa and Sri Lanka.
Trips and Expeditions are used to support learning in the classroom with pupils in every year group and in every subject visiting destinations in the UK in order to enhance their learning experience and bring each subject to life. Trips abroad are also organised, including trips to NASA, the Himalaya, Sports Tours and our annual, successful French, German and Spanish exchanges.
