Trips and Expeditions
We regard trips and expeditions to be an integral part of the learning journey at Lingfield College. Across all year groups they support, evolve and enrich the educational experience of our students. And there is no doubt that for many students their trips, in whichever year they attend, are a highlight of their time at Lingfield.
We offer a range of subject based and co-curricular trips, visits and expeditions, giving students the opportunity to become involved in academic enrichment, volunteering projects, music, drama and sports tours, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, language exchanges and cultural experiences.
Such immersive and enriching experiences help to develop key life skills, raise global awareness, stretch and challenge students, support socialisation and, of course, are great fun!
