Half Term Trips

For many Buckswood students, getting home during the half-term holidays is not an option. When you’ve already flown half way across the globe to come to school, why not see a little bit more of the world whilst you’re here! At Buckswood we don’t have exeats, but we do have an exciting range of half-term trips available to both boarding and day pupils; to visit a wide variety of destinations and discover more about the world and themselves with their friends and looked after by their familiar Buckswood house staff.


We often say at Buckswood that travel is the ‘fourth dimension’ in education. It assists in placing education in context, for it broadens minds and horizons, breaks down barriers, destroys misconception, enhances knowledge and promotes cultural understanding.


It is for those reasons that Buckswood has a well-established programme of annual trips, organised in such a way that the trips on offer are entirely appropriate for everyone. These opportunities for personal growth and character building place Buckswood students ahead of the rest. The trips on offer establish greater maturity, self-discipline, personal organisation and the ability to prioritise; all are essential qualities necessary to enhance success.
