Habs Girls 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 Senior School students, further enhancing their academic and personal development.

Some trips stay fairly close to home in the UK and Europe, while others take students as far away as India or North America.

Residential trips

There are whole-year residential trips in each of the first three years of Senior School. Many of our residential trips focus on the curriculum (such as language trips, biology field trips and visits to historical sites). Yet there are also cultural and sporting trips to be enjoyed.
