Educational Visits

date: 2018-05-11

As readers have seen over the last few weeks, Driffield School have had a large number of educational visits running recently. Education outside of the classroom is very valuable and we have lots more opportunities to experience this over the course of the summer term.

On 18th June, Year 10 Art students will be undertaking their annual visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. This is an exciting opportunity and experience for Year 10 Fine Art students to see artwork first hand in such a beautiful setting.  It will be an important part of the current project, as well as a valuable resource for their GCSE coursework portfolio.  The Yorkshire Sculpture Park is a centre for the study of sculpture, showcasing the best examples of modern and contemporary sculpture by UK and international artists.

On the 5th July, Year 12 Health and Social Care students are visiting the Hands on Health Interactive Day at the Guildhall in Hull. The event is an excellent opportunity to explore the different aspects of the NHS and to gain information on potential future careers within the organisation.

Mr Evans, Educational Visits Coordinator, said “Over the course of the term, there are also plans for both Year 10 and Year 12 Geography fieldwork, Year 12 Biology fieldwork, Year 10 History castles visits; and of course on Wednesday 18th July, students will have the opportunity to attend Driffield Show.

Thinking further ahead, we are already in the stages of planning a number of foreign visits. The Bormio ski trip planned for February 2019 has already had over 70 students enrol. There are a few limited places still available – letters can be collected from the ACE reception. Details of the other visits planned will be e-mailed to parents over the coming weeks”.
