Weekend Enrichment Trips

All students from Year 3 to Year 13 at Queen Ethelburga’s are encouraged to participate in Weekend Enrichment Activities. Offsite activities are a fun opportunity for students to form new friendships and gain new skills. Each activity contributes to students’ holistic development and enriches their experience at Queen Ethelburga’s.  

There are a selection of offsite activities suitable to all interests. Students regularly attend local attractions such as the cinema, bowling alley, restaurants, and trampoline park. Students can also visit cities in the school's locality to explore a wider variety of attractions and shops as well as explore historic (York or Durham) and urban (Leeds and Manchester) cities in the school's locality. 

Full Day Excursions

Alongside our local offsite visits, students can also participate in Full Day Excursions where students travel further afield to visit famous attractions. This year’s Full Day Excursions include delving into the world of Harry Potter at the Warner Bro’s studio tour or visiting the spectacular attractions that the seaside resort of Blackpool offers. Students can journey up to the top of Blackpool tower, visit the famous ballroom and meet all the celebrities immortalised at Madame Tussauds.
