Educational Trips and Visits 

Educational visits play a significant part in the development of our students, adding to and supporting many aspects of the curriculum and broadening the students' experiences.  At Ralph Allen School we are committed to providing a broad and balanced programme of opportunities.  Opportunities are provided to as many of our students as possible and we ensure that theses visits are very high quality and designed to maximise the educational benefits to the young people taking part.
