Warblington School has always prided itself on preparing our students for the real world and ensuring that they have the knowledge and skills to be Citizens of the 21st Century.
Extra curricular activities are an important part of school life where students are able to develop a sense of responsibility and independence by taking part in many of the activities on offer.

Trips are a vital part of the curriculum at Warblington. These range from trips linked directly to the curriculum, such as Geography field trips but also optional trips or visits outside of curriculum time. Examples of these range from the Water sports trips and Ski Trips.
Students must fill in a consent form and have an up to date medical form for these visits. Most trip leaders will distribute these to participants.
