"Teachers are passionate about their subjects and this is reflected in every lesson that they teach."

Extra Curricular & Trips

At Rickmansworth School students are offered a wide variety of opportunities to go on trips as we believe they add hugely to students’ learning in subjects, increase their interest in subjects and develop key life skills. The more academic based trips include West End theater visits, field trips to Yorkshire, the Lake District and Devon, visits to the Christmas markets in Berlin and Lille and the Battlefields of the Somme and a tour of Iceland. For the more physically active students there are sports tours to Germany, a water sports trip for Year 9 to Spain and a week-long ski trip for all ages each year. For the even more adventurous pupils;in Year 7 they can go on an outdoor activities week to South Wales, older students have the opportunity to take part in Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award expeditions and every two years we offer a 4 week overseas expedition; in recent years students have travelled to Borneo, the Galapagos Islands and Botswana and are currently planning trips to Tibet, Uganda and Ecuador.
