Residential Trips

Throughout their journey at European School The Hague, students take part in Residential Trips, requiring some days and overnight stays away from home.

Residential Trips are an important part of the European Schools curriculum as they provide experiences that complement what students learn in lessons. This is particularly important for students who are learning new languages, as immersion in language and culture provides the opportunity to put what has been learnt into practice. Many of the experiences that students have on Residential Trips extend beyond the scope of what is taught in classroom settings, making the trips very valuable learning experiences and a highlight of the school year for the students.

Teachers responsible for each Residential Trip will organise information evenings for students and parents in the lead up to the trip.

Mandatory Trips

The following Residential Trips are mandatory, as supported by the European Curriculum. If a student is unable to take part in a mandatory trip, parents should notify Secondary management as soon as possible.

Optional Trips

In addition to the mandatory trips, students may attend one other trip in one school year. If a student wishes to join additional Residential Trips, requests should be sent as a letter to the Deputy-Director explaining why their participation in the trip is important to them. Attending additional Residential Trips could be subject to other criteria such as results and absences.

Important Information

Parents will be informed via email when they need to confirm their child's participation in a trip, and more information will be provided at that time. 

The safety of all students on Residential Trips is of upmost importance, so the school reserves the right to cancel any Residential Trip if management deems it necessary to do so. Similarly, if the behavior or grades of a student are a concern for school management, the school reserves the rights to withdraw a student from a trip, in consultation with parents.

All costs indicated on this page are estimates only, and may change depending on the number of students attending. Parents will be advised of all costs prior to the trip, and will be charged by invoice 60 days before the trip commences. All invoices must be paid in full, 30 days prior to the trip. Unfortunately, refunds are not available if a student who registered for a trip, does not attend.

Field Trips

In addition to the Residential Trips, teachers also arrange field trips throughout the year. Participation in these events will depend on each student's subject choices. Parents will always be informed of these trips in advance, and any costs associated with their child’s participation will be invoiced.
