The range of activities allowed our children to experience activities that some had never experienced in their lives.

Educational trips are a vital part of life at Lichfield Cathedral School, extending every child’s experience and augmenting topics being studied in the classroom. Every visit, from day trips to museums and art galleries, to evenings at the theatre and residential visits, is carefully tailored to the particular age group and the needs of the children within that group.
Examples of recent visits:
- Pre-Reception visit to Drayton Manor Dinosaurland plus an educational workshop
- Year 1 visit to the Pear Tree Creperie to practice ordering food in French and the Snowdome to enjoy winter sports
- Year 2 visited the Thinktank in Birmingham linked to their study of electricity and Shugborough Hall to experience life as a Victorian child
- Year 3 visited Lunt Fort in Warwickshire as part of their study of Roman society and the Cannock Chase Woodland Walk to complete a Ground Art project
- Year 4 visit to Birmingham Museum
- Year 5 visited the Museum of Childhood in Sudbury and Enginuity at Ironbridge Gorge Museum in Telford
- Pre-Reception to Year 1 enjoyed a production of Jack and the Beanstalk at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre, while Years 2-6 travelled to the New Vic Theatre in Newcastle-under-Lyme to see The Adventures of Robin & Marion
