Trips and Excursions - Forres Sandle Manor

Trips and Excursions

At Forres Sandle Manor, trips and excursions are seen as an integral part of the school experience as they enable our pupils to explore, enrich and elevate their learning and social skills.

From Year 7, all the way through to Year 11, our pupils have the opportunity to enjoy taking their learning out of the classroom and into the world.

Based within the UK and overseas, these trips contribute to ensuring the Senior School experience at Forres Sandle Manor is exceptional.

Senior School Trips

Ski Trip to Passo Tonale in Italy.  This is a bi-annual week-long residential, usually during the Easter holidays, open to all pupils from Year 3 and above. 

All abilities are welcome, including those who would like to try skiing for the first time.


Sports Tours

We hold both UK and European Sports Tours that run alternate years. These are an opportunity to present all our children’s hard work on the national and international stage. All of these trips run within our Half Term holidays.


Arctic Adventure

One of the highlights for Seniors is the opportunity to experience an Arctic adventure! Staying in a cabin near the Arctic Circle, they enjoy activities, such as skiing, snow-shoeing, dog sledding, ice fishing, and fat biking. From this, they gain an understanding of traditional life and the environment.


UK and International Expeditions

We are excited to offer our Seniors, both UK and international educational expeditions, from the Brecons to the Azores. Pupils have the chance to enjoy the outdoors, learning skills, such as map reading, outdoor cookery and resilience. They are able to challenge themselves, gaining an appreciation of the natural world, whilst developing new skills.

Residential Week

Our residential week for pupils is always a highlight of the school year and takes place in June. Our Year 7 and 8 students have an amazing experience in either beautiful Normandy or Cornwall (alternating years between the two destinations). Our pupils have a wonderful time exploring the unique cultures, landscapes, and activities that these regions have to offer.

Our Year 9 and 10 pupils have an exciting opportunity to experience two trips to continental Europe. During their visits, they explore iconic landmarks and local communities, allowing them to gain a deeper appreciation of European culture.
