Residential Trips

Residential trips at QE are highly recommended by students and create long-lasting memories. They are a great way to make new friends and learn more about oneself. Our trips promote a curiosity to explore and equip students with organisational skills and independence to become accomplished travellers.

When asked about their favourite trips, our students said:

"High Adventure in Year 5, as it tested our skills and taught us how to work as a team!" 

"USA as I got to visit lots of different museums and monuments with my friends, including the 9/11 Memorial Museum, and it was an eye-opening experience."

"The Ski Trip to Italy in Year 7, I had so much fun skiing with friends, and I also made some new friends!"

"The Iceland Trip as I communicated with different people and developed my organisational skills."

Next step...

Parents/guardians will receive a letter for each residential trip in the months leading up to the trip’s departure date.

This letter will detail the itinerary, purpose, demands and cost. A link to an application and consent form will be available in this letter.

In addition, parents/guardians will receive further pre-departure information once all places are taken so you can prepare for your upcoming adventure!

The following residential trips provide opportunities for every interest, budget and age. With trips open to Years 3-13, age really is no barrier! We hope to see you on a trip soon.
