Trips & Events

Foxford School acknowledges the great value of educational trips and events, and the possibilities they provide beyond the classroom; we see them as integral and indispensable part of a broad and balanced education. They are an opportunity to extend the learning of all students as well as enriching their understanding of themselves, others, and the world around them.

We believe that outdoor education can,

  • Bring breadth to the learning experience
  • Stimulate enquiry
  • Encourage tolerance and quality in relationships between all involved
  • Extend, enlighten and enrich the curriculum and the student’s learning experience

Foxford School, as part of Castle Phoenix Trust, has formally adopted the “Outdoor Education Advisers’ Panel Guidance” (OEAP) updated detailed guidance, and advise can be found at  

In the academic year 2021-2022 trips included taking part in the City of culture festivities and events, including performing and an evening cycle ride.

Regular trips include Y10 Geography field trips, rewards trips to Drayton Manor, as part of the graduation rewards scheme, Big Bang Show as part of STEM, aspirational visits including university experiences for all year groups.
