Visits and Activities

Rather than asking parents for a series of small sums, Burford School has a fund to cover the costs of the various whole school, in-house activities that occur throughout the year, for example: Maths Day, French Day, Literacy Week, Science Day.  Therefore, we request, in September, a voluntary contribution per child, to cover these costs.  

Please note that if we do not receive a sufficient sum in voluntary contributions these visits will have to be cancelled since we could not cover the cost from the school funds.  In this instance, parents who had paid will be refunded.

In addition to in-house activities, there will be a number of trips throughout the year to enrich learning. Below is a list of trips with costings for each year group for last academic year.  This academic year proposed trips/costings will be added as soon as they have been confirmed.
