Camps & Excursions

At St Dominic's Priory College, we believe in the provision of a balanced education where the spiritual, physical, intellectual and emotional growth are seen as complementary.

Education outside the classroom is a powerful tool as it combines physical, psychological and social skills, and develops the opportunity to strengthen positive staff-student relationships. These opportunities provide an avenue for girls to experience success in a variety of settings, where individual talents are more likely to be recognised.

Currently St Dominic's Priory College is engaged in a range of education outside the classroom offerings that both support and enrich the curriculum. These include:
