The school also arranges a number of foreign visits that support the curriculum and give students the chance to expand their horizons as well as to help them to understand different cultures. We enjoy exciting activities during our residential trips abroad such as abseiling, archery, kayaking, zip wire and grass sledging. We also get the chance to do things like exploring coastal walks, hunting for fossils and looking for red squirrels in woodlands on the Isle of Wight and other fun and safe camps.
Charity activity is a major focus for the Temple School community. Students undertake to adopt a local primary school and spend time teaching the children a particular skill, or initiate additional fund-raising in support of other identified needs. The students commit to making a positive contribution to their community each term.
