Trips and Visits

Educational and Residential Visits

We are very proud of the range of trips and visits offered at Cove School. Not only do our students get to experience different cultures with trips abroad, they are offered a range of local trips to further enhance their education. In addition to this, we often welcome visitors to the school to talk to the students about special subjects in the hope that it'll inspire them and open their minds to the many wonderful career options available to them.     

Please be advised that the school can no longer accept cash payment. You can pay online via scopay or by cheque made payable to Cove School. If you need any help accessing the ScoPay website please contact the finance department. (Cash will still be accepted by the kitchen for the cashless catering)
