Enrichment & Trips

We pride ourselves on the varied, educational and fun trips and residentials and enrichment activities that we provide for the children in addition to our core curriculum offer. We believe that such events have a very important role to play in our children’s education.

We aim to put on two trips per term for each student, ensuring that the experiences tie in directly to what the students are studying that term as well as offering plenty of fun! We also like to ensure that the trips open up new opportunities to the children to try something that they haven’t necessarily experienced before. Trips and additional activities are also offered to our Preschool children.

We are particularly proud of our amazing end of year 2 night residential to London in June for Years 5 and 6. The children experience a variety of events, including a West End show, a trip to parliament, visit to the Tower of London, a trip to Harry Potter World and the London Eye.

In addition to the trips and residentials, we also organise enrichment programmes on-site. These could be sport, drama, music or subject focused or indeed just a treat activity.

We work very hard to ensure that the trips, programmes and events we put on represent exceptional value. The financial support we receive from the Friends of the School enables us to cost these events as effectively as possible with the price to families being substantially lower than the actual trip costs. Particularly expensive trips, such as the London Residential for Years 5 and 6 in June, are costed a year in advance and payment plans put in place for families to help with budgeting.
