Off-site visits play an important part in the learning experiences we offer our pupils.
Children regularly visit museums, galleries, places of worship, and activity centres. Visits to sites of geographical or historical interest support their studies in particular areas of the curriculum.
We aim to make sure all pupils experience live theatre at least once every school year. This may involve a visit to a theatre or a dramatic group may visit the school.
Outdoor education is also important, so the children visit a country park each year. The aim is to develop a sense of ownership for the area and to observe the changing seasons. They develop a respect for the environment and a sense of responsibility towards it. Nature rambles, orienteering, pond dipping, sketching and photography, as well as initiative exercises, are included in these activities.
Our Junior children can experience time away from home on our weekends to Winmarleigh Hall, near Lancaster and Lledr Hall in Wales. These holidays integrate outdoor activities such as quad biking and archery with computer studies.
In Years 5 and 6 the children can take part in longer visits to France and Spain. You can read details about our trips in our newsletters.
