All of our year groups have the opportunity to attend a residential visit as well as many day visits. Our overseas programme includes visits to Paris, Belgium, Lourdes and even as far away as Tanzania. We have one of the largest Duke of Edinburgh programmes in the West Midlands and offer from Bronze to Gold level. Here we have listed our main visits that occur annually so you can have a flavour of what we offer. This list is not exhaustive and is subject to change.

Arete
Physical Education  
This is a long standing residential trip which has moved from the well renowned Ogwen Cottage (which closed in 2013), many ex-students will reminisce about this trip with fond memories with tails of how it changed their lives for the better. We take Year 9 students for a 5 day residential to Snowdonia to part take in a range of outdoor education experiences. They complete activities which challenge and take them outside of their comfort zones, tailor made to the group, giving them the skills to persevere and uncover talents they did not know they have. It builds on their team building and leadership skills and introduces them to activities that they will rarely be able to experience in everyday life in a setting far removed from the city life we are used to. This is a fantastic trip which I highly recommend everyone apply to come on.

Gold DofE
 
The Duke of Edinburgh Award at Tommies began with enrolment in 2006, with a cohort of 13 6th Form students. The two groups undertook their practice expedition in the very challenging Dark Peaks and were successful enough to be put forward for their Qualification in the Brecon Beacons. During their time on expedition the weather became inclement and both groups on the 3rd day found challenging weather in the form of thick fog with one group ending up camping up on the hills overnight. The very 1st person to complete the whole of the Gold Award was Naomi Austin who received her Award at St James’ Palace in the presence of the Duke of Edinburgh himself. From that initial cohort of 13 we have had 4 successful finish the Award as a whole and just this year (2016) some eight years after their expedition, Mr O’Sullivan finally completed all his sections and will be going to the Palace also this year to pick up his well-earned Award. To date, we have had 12 students complete their Gold Award and are hoping to put forward another 10 students to head off to the Palace. Last year we enrolled another 28 students – twice as big as any cohort before, with the expectation that we will have 20 pick up their Award next year. All these achievements would not be so successful without all the staff, who have given up their time and effort, from Bronze through to Gold – I thank you all.

Lourdes

Every year, the Sixth Form have the opportunity to join the Birmingham Diocesan annual pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in Southern France. Millions of pilgrims visit Lourdes each year since the apparitions in 1858 where Mary appeared to St Bernadette 18 times. Lourdes has since become renowned as a place of healing and the Catholic Church has recognised a total of 69 miracles having taken place there. Students travel to Lourdes during the May half-term, where they volunteer serving sick and elderly pilgrims. Students have the opportunity to live out their faith in a very direct way and work in a privileged position supporting and caring for those who are less fortunate than themselves. Students often find working with the pilgrims a humbling and rewarding experience. Throughout the week there are also many opportunities to visit other places of interest and meet young people from across the Diocese.
