Educational Visits

COVID 19 update – January – February 2021

We have paused Educational Visits now in line with guidance from the Department for Education and Foreign and Commonwealth Office.  We will review this regularly and recommence a programme of visits as soon as it is safe to do so.

At Holy Cross, we believe that pupils can gain a great deal from participating in educational visits, as not only do they offer opportunities to broaden their horizons and enrich their experiences, but they also allow pupils to enhance their social, emotional and personal development.  Learning outside of the classroom adds value to each individual’s academic and personal development and this is why educational visits are embedded into our curriculum.

You will find on each departmental curriculum plan in the ‘cultural exposure’ section an overview of where some of the approved visits take place within each subject area.

The Governing Body of Holy Cross High School has adopted the Lancashire Educational Visits Policy for the management of all school visits.

At Holy Cross, we recognise the fact that some of the educational visits in particular are expensive.  You will be given advanced notice of each educational visit and instalment payments can be made over a period of time.  You will find more details of the visits available from the visit leaders.

Below is a table detailing the visits agreed by the Governors of the school for this school year, along with the Year Group involved, the cost and the overall aim of the visit.  Please note that not all visits are detailed below, given that some are additional visits that are planned when they are advertised, such as theatre visits.

If you have any questions about any of these visits, please contact the school and speak to Miss Marcroft (Educational Visits Co-ordinator and Assistant Headteacher)
