Educational Visits

At KSHS we currently offer a number of different activities and trips which support the curriculum. We believe strongly that learning can be extended and enriched beyond the classroom and therefore offer a range of opportunities to help your child experience different cultures, strengthen friendships and undertake personal challenges.
