Trips

We have a wide range of trips both, locally, nationally and internationally for all year groups across all subject areas. We are passionate about enriching cultural awareness and constantly explore opportunities to give students the chance to enrich their learning journey beyond the classroom. Subjects organise numerous visits to enable students to apply their learning in the outside world and help foster the aspiration for lifelong learning.

  • Physical education and sport is a key strength of what Maricourt has to offer. Through the extensive range of both individual and team sports you can guarantee that the PE department will foster, encourage and promote the development of any sports discipline.We have a long lasting history of sporting achievements at both local, county and national level and compete in a wide variety of sports. Our annual sports awards evening celebrates and showcases the high quality and brilliance of our young peoples successes.
  • Annual trips both locally, nationally and internationally allows for cultural development and an appreciation for the sporting contributions worldwide. There is an annual ski trip to the Italian Alpsand domestic and international football tours, we have recently spent time at Borussia Dortmund, Benfica, Ajax, Feyenoord, Villarreal and in the North East at Newcastle, Sunderland and Middlesbrough. On these trips students get trained by club coaches, play fixtures against local teams, enjoy a stadium tour and watch a live match at some incredible stadiums. Girls also have the opportunity to join the netball tour that takes place at Euro Disney. Here our girls enjoy coaching sessions with England netball stars and play in a huge tournament as well as having time to enjoy the park
  • University visits, industry days, college taster days, competitions at local and national level in Mathematics and Computing competitions, enables students to thrive and realise that there are no personal limits to their success.
  • I loved it at Maricourt because the teachers always pushed me to reach my potential and there were so many opportunities to get involved with such as dance clubs, careers talks and events and trips and holidays (such as Alton towers, York, London, Spain, Italy and New York!) Past pupil 2020
