Models of Excellence

Welcome to XP Trust! 


On this page you will find examples from across Year Groups and Phases of our Expeditionary Curriculum. Our learning expeditions are cross subject, academically rigorous and connect with our community and the wider world through students creating purposeful products that have real agency. Through creating beautiful and meaningful work our students grow their character, as well as, improving as learners. Whilst we are proud of our work, we want to share it with the world for critique so that we can continue to improve. Feel free to use any of the expeditions, or adapt them for your own use. And if you improve them please let us know!


Best wishes


Andy Sprakes
