aspiring flourishing loving


At Ripon Cathedral School we acknowledge the immense value of educational visits to children to support their wholistic development.

Learning Beyond the Classroom has a vital part to play in meeting the demands of a broad and balanced curriculum, and in achieving the goal of preparing children for life beyond school.

Educational visits, residential experiences and activities in the local area of the school and school grounds are an integral part of our whole school approach.


Learning Beyond the Classroom

Our programme ensures that children encounter a diverse range of opportunities and experiences that support the delivery of our curriculum.  It is our intent that when children leave Ripon Cathedral School that they have an understanding of themselves, with rich social capital that will help them to succeed in all aspects of our modern world.
