Headteachers Blog 12 – February 2018

9th February 2018

One of The Chase’s major selling points is our extracurricular provision and the wide variety of opportunities available to our students. The Chase has a long and rich history of enrichment provision and thanks to our committed and dedicated staff, we have continued with this Chase tradition. As a geography teacher myself, I am fully supportive of extracurricular activities, trips and visits as I believe that these ‘out of school’ experiences have a key part to play in shaping our children’s lives.

Here is a list of many of our proposed and planned school trips for the next academic year 2018-2019. This list is by no means exhaustive but it does provide a great snapshot of the opportunities available to our students during the year.
