Bethany may have a rural setting, but great transport links mean the School is well-connected, and pupils benefit from frequent trips, close to home and further afield.

Trips and Adventures are an important part of life in the Sixth Form at Bethany, giving you the chance to put the skills you have developed into practice. Some are academic, some artistic, some sporting but all are rewarding.

Every two years, Bethany’s Sixth Form are offered a life changing opportunity to undertake an expedition overseas. The journey is transformational, as pupils dedicate time and care to a charitable project that often revitalises whole communities, while exploring their resolve and honing vital skills in the expedition that follows.

South Africa


“Following months of successful fundraising we were able to complete a significant amount of refurbishment to Ondini Primary school… our Sixth Form were overwhelmed with emotion at meeting the local families who came to see us.”

“Trekking in the Drakensberg mountains was unbelievable…. such beautiful surroundings, including bushmen cave paintings, crystal clear rivers, and extreme temperatures.”

Barcelona


In what is becoming a regular fixture, Bethany’s 1st XV Rugby team headed to Barcelona to compete with Sitges Rugby Club. The competition is a highlight of the trip, but outings to see the sights of the city and play some rugby on the golden sand are certainly memories that will last.

New York


“Sixth Form Business, Maths and Media Studies pupils left a cold Heathrow en route to a much, much colder New York. The group spent four days exploring the main tourist sights of New York as well as enjoying educational visits to Wall St, the Museum of Maths, Macy’s and Schwartz department stores, the Museum of American Finance and The Museum of the Moving Image.”

Taiwan


“The ten unforgettable days could be summed up by the smells, the noises, the sights we were privileged to see, but above all, our pupils built bonds and ties with some wonderful pupils from the other side of the world which I expect will stay for life. This trip is one I would encourage as many of our Sixth Form pupils to get involved in as possible. It truly is that ‘once in a lifetime’ experience.”
