Habs Boys is a wonderful environment for learning. Yet going out into the world brings an exciting new perspective, whether exploring the local countryside or heading on an overseas adventure.

We run a busy trip schedule for our Sixth Form students, further enhancing your academic and personal development. This page gives some examples of prior excursions, but you will receive full details on all trips planned in your academic year.

Day trips

We run a number of day trips to broaden your educational horizons, enhancing your experiences. These have included art trips to galleries, political trips to Parliament, geography field trips to the coast, theatre trips and conferences in law, Psychology, English, Theology and Physics.

Residential trips

Many of our residential trips focus on the curriculum, such as languages, biology field trips and visits to historical sites. Yet there are cultural, sporting and leisure excursions too, with all trips chaperoned.

Some trips stay fairly close to home in the UK and Europe, while others may take you as far as Africa, Asia or North America.
