Belhaven Hill School

Co-ed Boarding & Day School for ages 5-13

Terrific Trips Week for the Whole School

Terrific Trips' Week for the Whole School

Belhaven Hill pupils have fun during 'Trips Week'

Back in the days, it was only the Leavers who spent a few days at the end of year participating in activities that got them out of the school grounds. Over the last 20 years this changed and now the entire School is timetabled for a week of Trips at the end of the Summer Term.

Trips that not only challenge the pupils physically, but also intellectually and, of course, at the same time everyone has enormous amounts of fun.

The following is some of the itinerary for each Form:

Form 1 Trips Week 2023

Form 1 travelled to Belfast to their accommodation at Queen's University and then to explore the city, the North Antrim Coast, Currys Amusements and have fun at Todds Leap Outdoor Activity Centre to round off the trip before sailing back across the Irish Sea

Form 2 Trips Week 2023

Form 2 went to Bisley at Braidwood, Selkirk, to clay pigeon shoot, fly a zip wire, fence, team build with adventure on low and high ropes, mountain bikes and a river scramble. Their final stop was Dunbar's Foxlake Aqua Park. 

Form 3 Trips Week 2023

Form 3 experienced archery, canoeing, a jungle float (!) and loch swimming at Loch Insh Outdoor Centre on the River Spey

Form 4 Trips Week 2023

Form 4 went to York where they walked the walls, climbed Clifford's Tower, shopped shambolically in the Shambles, went back in time at the Jorvik Centre and were pretty scared in The Dungeons but were consoled in the Chocolate Factory!

Read the children's accounts of their adventures in York!

Form 5 Trips Week 2023

Form 5 
went back in time to the Victorian era at Beamish Museum to experience the Puffing Billy (steam train replica), a Victorian school lesson and playground, campfire games, Jubillee Confectioner and a trip to the Funfair.

Pre-Prep Trips Week 2023

Pre-Prep travelled to all sorts of exciting places, including: Fort Douglas, the Bass Rock, Discovery Dundee, National Museum of Scotland, Blair Drummond Safari Park and Deep Sea World 

Who wouldn't want to be a part of all that?!
