Trips & Visits

RSD pupils enjoy lots of opportunities to go on trips, attend conferences and open days, enter competitions and learn from visitors. Many of these opportunities are organised through subject Departments and clubs & societies but some are whole school in nature and open to all pupils.

Most of these activities are local in nature but some take pupils a little further afield with trips to London, Paris, Rome or Madrid; or a ski trip to the Alps; or with the Uganda Team to work at Bethel Royal High School in Nakasongola.

Wherever the destination, the key focus is always on expanding pupils’ horizons so that pupils extend their learning and interests beyond the classroom.
