Welcome to the Townley Grammar School community!

Life at Townley does not stop at the end of the school day. Students take part in a large variety of trips and visits.

Some of these trips are an important part of academic courses and occur during term time, but many are optional visits, sometimes during the school holidays. It is our belief that each trip provides a valuable experience that will help students develop essential skills including confidence, empathy, self-sufficiency and leadership. A typical term might include opportunities for students to participate in Duke of Edinburgh training, a visit to a European country to brush up on language skills, or a cultural exchange to Delhi, India.

Townley are proud to announce that the school has achieved the International School Award for 2020-2023.  This reflects the work that has been put into developing international relations with communities, organisations and educational institutions from around the globe and the positive impact that visiting and experiencing other cultures have on our students.

In addition to the numerous opportunities for visits in the UK, an exciting and varied programme of trips takes our pupils across the globe to discover places of cultural, geographical and historical interest. During her time at Townley your daughter will have the opportunity to be involved in many of the following international experiences:

  • Music trips
