Trips & Outings

New College School offers a large variety of day and residential trips to our pupils, substantially enriching classroom teaching. Being in the centre of a cultural hotspot like Oxford, we make excellent use of the local sights; from world-class museums, libraries, music venues to college archives, churches and natural spaces. Our trips begin in Year 3 and give the boys the opportunity to learn in a more liberal and experiential context. The trips start with a day away locally and then develop to destinations such as the Malvern Hills, Snowdonia, France and Italy. The majority of the trips have an academic focus with particular interest in Geography, History, Classics and Languages. Recent trips have included:
