There are many opportunities for Uppinghamians to explore the world outside Uppingham. In addition to educational trips, field trips, training camps for the Combined Cadet Force, the Duke of Edinburgh's Award expeditions, sporting tours to the northern and southern hemispheres, the School also has a long tradition of mounting overseas expeditions, the most recent being to Jordan; cycling from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea.
Thirteen girls and twelve boys from Uppingham, along with Stephan and Kyi Muller and Tyrone Howe, travelled through Jordan, from the Dead Sea in the North to the Red Sea in the far south, by bicycle and on foot. Covering distances up to 100km in a day in temperatures reaching the mid-30s, there were some substantial physical challenges to be overcome – but the group was amply rewarded for their efforts by staying in some extraordinary places, meeting wonderfully hospitable people, and making the very most out of their stay in this fascinating country.

After months of planning and scuba diving training 12 Uppinghamians, along with Nicola Hunter and Nick de Wet, departed for Kuala Lumpur on Friday 6th July to join the Borneo World Challenge expedition.
They will worked as a team for three weeks as they travelled to the Perhentian Islands to complete their Advanced Open Water Dive Training and take part in a Turtle Conservation project.

One major sporting tour usually takes place on an annual basis. In the past, pupils have visited South Africa, India and Australia. More information on previous tours from this year and last year can be found on the links below.
