Trips and Activities

The Department runs a large number of extra-curricular clubs available to students.  Several are run by our student Ensemble Captains.  Performance opportunities include fortnightly assemblies, two major concerts per year at Christmas and Spring.  We also participate in local events for charity and have taken advantage of collaborative opportunities run by Berkshire Maestros to perform at the Royal Albert Hall and Windsor Castle in recent years.

The Department also runs a number of trips throughout the year.  These include A-Level set-work trips to London to see professional concert performances of key works related to the A-Level course, an Ensemble Captain reward trip and our regular trips to Europe during Activities Week.  In recent years we have toured Belgium (2014), Holland (2015), Germany (2016), Spain (2017) and in July 2019 took 100 girls to Lake Garda, Italy.  Our next trip is to Paris in July 2020 with 120 girls.
