At Testwood we recognise that all of our students are unique individuals, and we provide an extensive range of opportunities for all to broaden their experience and develop their interest, skills and talents.

Trips and visits

Going on school trips helps students gain real-world experience that cannot be taught in a classroom, opening their minds to different cultures and strengthening their knowledge of the world around them.

Students can explore the world with confidence and build culture links by participating in the many trips and visits that take place. We have many education trips to Universities, Museums and Theatres, along with exciting opportunities abroad such as Venice and Poland.

Guest Speakers

Hearing from guest speakers enables students to learn from and engage with significant individuals from a variety of industries and areas of expertise in a way that cannot be done in the classroom alone. Hosting visiting speakers in schools has been shown to benefit students in a number of ways, including by increasing aspirations for later life, avoiding stereotyping, providing motivation to work harder, boosting self-belief, developing social skills and building resilience. At Testwood, we have been fortunate to receive visits from a number of guest speakers.
