School Trips


At St. Stephen’s Junior School we offer a wide range of trips across all year groups. These are made up of class / year group trips, family / fun trips, care, courtesy and consideration trips and trips in the local community.

Trips in the Local Community

These trips are designed to fit in with the school day and are often linked to school topics or the curriculum. They are usually free of charge and do not involve transport.

Class / Year group trips

These trips are usually twice per year and may be linked to the curriculum. They are optional and incur a fee.


Family / Fun trips

These trips are open to all children and are optional. Parents can sometimes attend with their child and both pupils and parents incur a fee.

Care, Courtesy and Consideration Trips

These trips are usually twice per year. Children are chosen to take part by their teachers and consideration is given to all pupils in the year group.  Children that have shown that they are polite, caring and considerate to others across all aspects of school life are rewarded for their efforts. These trips are free of charge.

Residential / overseas trips

Residential/activity trips are offered to upper school children every year and are optional.  These trips involve one or more nights away from home and are used for team building and raising children’s aspirations.  Parents can attend our annual skiing trip.

Macugnaga (Italy) 2019

Children from St. Stephen's Junior visited Macugnaga in Italy from the 27th January to the 1st February 2019 on the annual St. Stephen's Junior ski trip. Snow was far lighter than on our previous trips, but still provided for excellent skiing conditions on all slopes throughout the week.

Arriving at the hotel in Pecetto village early Sunday afternoon, children spent the following week skiing, ice-skating, visiting an old mine in the nearby village of Staffa, followed by an exhilirating ride up a cable car to the top of the mountain. There was a lot of cloud cover and snow higher up on the mountain this year, so views of the valleys were restricted, but the fresh air, powdery snow and tasty hot chocolate in the mountain-top restaurant made the trip extremely worthwhile. The group arrived back in Canterbury at around 8pm on Friday the 1st February after a smooth flight from Milan. What an adventure!
