Retweetd From Department for Education

Limiting class sizes, keeping children in small, consistent groups and preventing mixing will allow more children to return to school in a phased way that reduces risk.

Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Experience planner

Our trips co-ordinator is Miss S. Harris who may be contacted on or on 01375 802060.

On this page we will soon be listing for the consideration of students, parents and carers the trips we intend to provide. Some of these are in the planning stage and others have dates and approximate costs already. All trips are subject to confirmation by the Board of Governors and details may change.

Nearer the time, we will send an e-mail to all parent and carer addresses opening the trip waiting list and giving further details. At that time parents and carers are invited to reply expressing interest in holding a place on the trip. Parents and carers are advised to ensure that the academy has up to date e-mail contact details.

Please note that all trips have some educational or experiential purpose - for example the trip to Thorpe Park, while it incudes some time enjoying the rides in the park, is provided through a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) programme and therefore includes some time studying the science and mechanics of the rides.

Allocation of places on a trip

  • The general rule is that a place will be allocated on the trip on receipt of a parent or carer's e-mail requesting a place to be allocated - in other words on a first come first served basis based on expression of interest.
  • The academy will never allocate places on the basis of first come first served on the basis of payment of a deposit since we believe that this is a disadvantage to those parents who will want to work out budgets and cash flow before committing.
  • On occasion the academy may allocate a small number of places to students who have not had the chance to attend a previous trip or experience or who have won a place due to a reward or in the opinion of the Principal who would particularly benefit from a place
  • On occasion it may be necessary to allocate places to ensure representation of student groups; for example to ensure that there is an appropriate split of girls and boys where this is necessary to satisfy trip requirements or adequate supervision; occasionally external funding for trips depends upon representation of certain groups of students - for example the academy may receive external funding for a trip provided that a certain number of students study a certain subject.  

Please be advised that our students appear to be particularly enthusiastic about trips and experiences and so parents should not delay in expressing an interest when the academy opens the trip list. Parents are free to change their minds after requesting a place but before confirmation. After a trip place has been confirmed, the academy has to pay for the trip as a whole and therefore it may be difficult for the academy to repay parents and carers who withdraw a student after the confirmation date.

Please do not try to register your interest until the above e-mail invitation has been received.

Limited financial assistance may be available at the discretion of the Principal but parents and carers who think they may want to ask for financial assistance should not delay in e-mailing the academy to request a place.

Upcoming trips for which e-mails will be sent in the coming weeks and months will soon be listed in the table below. Please note that trips may be added or removed as details develop. Residential trips are highlighted in bold.

Please note that trips which are denoted 'day trip in academy time' may have early starts or late finishes.
