We believe that children benefit considerably from residential trips. They learn as much about themselves, as they do about the activities. To this end, the school arranges two residential trips. In Year 5, children have the opportunity to go to London visiting famous museums and landmarks, as well as going to the theatre for an evening performance. They leave school on a Wednesday and come home on the Friday. For many children this is the first time they have spent 2 nights away from home and so staff spend time ensuring children are settled and secure.

In Year 6 the children go to a Residential Activity Centre in Wales. This is a week’s residential trip and the children participate in many outdoor physical activities including  canoeing, climbing, abseiling, raft building and coastal walking. Many activities enable the children to face their fears of these very adventurous activities, whilst in a safe, secure environment. You will be fully informed of these visits well in advance and we hope your child will be able to take part. We work hard to ensure that all children, including those with disabilities, can participate as fully as possible in these trips. These trips are not only educational, but great fun and add to the whole learning experience.
