Cross Curricular Learning

Students at Gillingham School have the privilege of taking part in many different events and trips. These help us to bring another dimension to our teaching and allow students new experiences. Cross-curricular opportunities allow the students to transfer important skills between subject areas and explore the links between them. For example, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) activities provide the opportunity to enhance and enrich learning in those subjects.

In addition, listed below are some of the incredible range of extra-curricular trips and activities which our students are able to benefit from. Note that trips may not run every year and are clearly subject to change.
