Even in the early years there were a number of regular outings. Each Church took their congregation and choir at a different time and consequently schooling was disrupted on a number of days. The Church of England, Congregational (United Reformed), Primitive Methodist and their Choirs visited a number of resorts. Mostly to the seaside, to places such as Margate, Brighton, Southsea, Bognor, Clacton and Eastbourne. Other trips included Olympia, Southend, Luton and Wembley (to the British Empire exhibition).

Visits by the middle of the twentieth century had a more educational theme and included places such as London Airport, The Commonwealth Institute, The National History Museum and the Science Museum as well as visits to London Zoo, Whipsnade Zoo, Windsor and Maidenhead.
