Trips & Outings
Christ Church pupils enjoy a wide variety of trips and activities outside school, designed to enrich their learning. We believe that education should not be confined to the four walls of the classroom.
Foremost among these is the annual summer French Trip, to which over a third of boys in the Prep School sign up. In recent years we have visited the D-Day Landing sites, the Battlefields of the Somme, Dieppe, and Le Mont St-Michel. This year, Years 5, 6 and 7, have been invited to join an immersive trip to Normandy for one week from 11th July. They will experience French culture, local excursions to the food markets and French delicacies. And a chance to practice their French with native speakers.
There are also regular trips to the many museums and monuments of the historic university city of Oxford, including the Natural History Museum, the Ashmolean, and the Botanical Gardens. Every year Theme Day provides an opportunity to explore the colleges of the University, and Christ Church boys have unrivalled access to the buildings and spaces which lie beyond the reach of most tourists and visitors.
Choristers take part in a busy Outreach programme, visiting local schools and showcasing their choral skills, while regular concerts involving Christ Church pupils are held throughout Oxford and beyond.
When pupils return from such visits and activities, they do so with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world around them.
