VALE OF YORK ACADEMY IS PART OF

Morocco 2019

Taking part in an expedition like this is so much more than a school trip. This is a journey that will stay with your child forever.

In the summer of 2019, we will heading off on a school expedition to Morocco. This will take place with school staff but run through Outlook Expeditions who are the leading independent provider of youth expeditions. 

This expedition will be eye-opening, challenging and truly life changing; students experience different cultures and environments whilst developing an array of life skills. This could be a chance for your son/daughter to learn a new culture, support a community project of those in need, learn a new language, make new friends and naturally, have endless stories and experiences to talk about.

Universities and employers are increasingly looking for evidence of personal and social skills. Expeditions take young people out of their comfort zone and expand horizons whilst boosting independence, confidence, teamwork and many other qualities that have a lasting impact on the lives (and CVs) of each participant.

The expedition will be head up by Mr Rampling who will be working with the students during the lead up to the trip to help them raise the funds needed.

Outlook Expeditions will lead the venture in Morocco and guide us to ensure we have the best possible time. There will be trekking across Morocco, a community project, time for relaxation, and of course time to ride a camel!
