Queen’s Gate offers a truly extensive and innovative range of trips for our girls. From short hops across the road to take in the treasures of our near neighbours, the Natural History Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum, to epic expeditions to far-flung destinations such as the USA and Japan, we love getting out and about. We know how much trips enrich pupils’ experience, giving them the chance to experience the world outside Queen’s Gate, see their learning come to life, and develop their confidence and independence.
Our South Kensington location spoils us, as we are able to take advantage of London’s many attractions. We are regular visitors to the Globe and the National, to the West End for musical theatre, to lectures at the Royal Geographic Society and the many museums and galleries available to us here in the capital. While the Natural History Museum and V&A are obvious regular destinations, recent excursions have also found their way to discover Ancient Mycenae at the British Museum and the Taylor Wessing photographic Portrait Prize just a stone’s throw away at Cromwell Place.
At the same time, we welcome any opportunity to breach the confines of the M25, with recent trips including Brighton (including a visit to the University of Surrey), Cambridge and Duke of Edinburgh expeditions. The outdoors theme continues with our Remove trip to Dorset, where the girls celebrated their successful completion of their first year of Senior School with three days of exciting, challenging and bonding activities. For the STEM minds, girls find themselves exploring computer programming at Legoland and Bletchley Park.
For those wanting to travel further afield, we offer an annual ski trip which alternates between resorts in North America and Europe. Other opportunities have included travelling up through the West Coast states of America, the icy landscape of wintry Sweden and, in the coming years, Croatia and Japan.
