International Opportunities

Reef and Rainforest

The Reef and Rainforest trip presents the opportunity to explore the only place in the world where two World Heritage Sites meet, the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropical Forests of Queensland. The aim is to improve our knowledge of these special ecosystems by immersing ourselves in them and learning from the excellent guides and educators we encounter. Students should have a strong interest in Science, especially Biology, care about the environment and be prepared for adventure! Read More...

Space Camp

The Space Camp trip is an amazing opportunity for students to train as an astronaut and experience life in the USA. Every two years we aim to take a group to Space Camp, Alabama, and then onto Florida to visit Kennedy Space Centre where if they are lucky, see a rocket launch. Students need to have a strong interest in Science and Space, be prepared to work hard and throw themselves into dawn to dusk activities building a supportive team to fly the Shuttle simulator!
