Enrichment Trips and Visits
Enrichment Week takes place in the last week of the Summer Term. There is a daily programme for each year group, including days out, team building exercises and creative activities. We also run overseas visits during this week. Year 8 have had the opportunity to visit the World War One battlefields, Year 9 can go to France and Germany for a language visit and Year 10 have the chance to go to Belgium. There are a number of trips and activities to choose from, including no-cost options.
Please see below the activities that our pupils had to pick from in previous academic years:

Details about trips running at the end of the year tend to be published later on in the academic year. Enrichment week is evaluated and adapted annually in line with pupil and parent feedback.
In light of the current pandemic, these are under reevaluation.
Educational visits and trips
As well as the trips on offer during Enrichment Week, our pupils also have a number of educational visits and trips they can attend during the academic year. There is a wide variety of excursions for the girls to take part in in each year group including a Robotics & Coding trip in Year 7, the Sealife Centre in Year 8, Bletchley Park in Year 9, the Geography Field Trip in Year 10, Medicine Through Time in Year 11, The Houses of Parliament in Year 12 and a Phobia Trip in Year 13 to name a few! These trips are published in the school calendar at the start of the academic year.
BHGS takes part in World Challenge every other academic year, taking students from Years 12 and 13 to developing countries on empowering journeys which allow them to step outside of their comfort zones, explore the world and come back forever changed. The pupils (supported by the school) fundraise to take part and then trek, immerse themselves in to the country’s culture and support a community project.
Our next expedition will take place in Malaysia during Summer 2023 and you can discover an outline of the type of itinerary this type of enrichment trip offers the students who take part:
