Extra Curricular

School Trips

School trips are an important part of the way we develop pupils’ understanding of the curriculum and enhance their self-confidence at Hulme.

A very wide range of trips and visits are undertaken every year at Hulme. Kindergarten children enjoy a range of visits designed to help their understanding of the curriculum and the world around them. 2016 highlights included: the Blue Planet Aquarium, Dovestones reservoir and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

In the Juniors, recent trip highlights have included Year 3 dressing as evacuees for their trip to the Stockport Air Raid Shelters; Year 4 becoming Romans for the day in Chester and Year 5 becoming Anglo-Saxons at Tatton Park.

A real rite of passage for our Kindergarten and Juniors children are the annual residential visits to Castleshaw and Aldwark in North Yorkshire, where they undertake a range of exciting outdoor activities.

Senior school pupils are also well travelled with educational trips and visits. Recent highlights have seen: a CCF Expedition to Everest Base Camp, visits to our sister school in Ghana, a Classics trip to Italy and visits to Paris, Berlin and New York led by the Modern Language Department.
