Educational Visits

Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School places great emphasis on providing educational visits to enhance the curriculum and to offer our students genuine life experiences

Below are examples of some of the educational visits, which have taken place over the last couple of years. This list is by no means exhaustive and is adapted each year. School visits are organised by staff in all departments and our Educational Visits Co-ordinator is Miss S Bellin, Deputy Headteacher. Reports about the visits often feature in the school newsletters and give the thoughts of the pupils experiences.
