Trips and visits
Here at Bellingham Middle we believe that it is important that pupils have the opportunity to take part in trips and visits where it will support their education, encourage their understanding of the world, develop social skills and relationships with others, build character, find about what their next steps after school could be and provide enjoyment and enthusiasm. For these reasons we organise a number of trips and visits throughout the year. Please keep an eye out for our regular newsletters and letters home about trips and visits planned.
We are hoping to expand our residential trips to include a trip to London and/or Edinburgh for KS3 this year. Please look out for letters from Mrs Samuels.
