Residential and day trips are an integral part of the learning journey at Lingfield College. From Foundation Stage to the Upper Sixth they support, evolve and extend the educational experience of the students. Our trips schedule is rationalised to give students the opportunity to become involved in academic enrichment, sports tours, the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, language exchanges and cultural experiences. We believe that trips are an essential socialising factor in young people’s development as well as being stretching, challenging and, of course, fun!
There is no doubt that for many students and teachers, their trips, in whichever year they attend, are a highlight of their time at Lingfield.

Year Seven – Residential to Paris, weekend residential at Bowles, Bushcraft
