As part of our commitment to real experiences at the core of learning, we subsidise four very special trips:
Year 2 (age 6-7) visit ‘The Mill’ in Surrey every June, for two days and one night;
Year 4 (age 8-9) go camping in Epping Forest in July, for two days and one night;
Year 5 (age 9-10) spend an October week at a Field Centre also in Surrey with the emphasis on team building and outdoor activities such as absailing and shelter building. We also manage to fit in a visit to the brilliant Weald and Downland Museum to make links with work on the Tudors.
Year 6 (age 10-11) spend 7 days and nights in September/October at one of author Michael Morpurgo’s Farms for City Children. They live and work at Wick Court, an Elizabethan farm in Gloucestershire.
These are all wonderful experiences cited by children as amongst their best memories of school life. Parents are asked to make a contribution to each trip but each is well managed allowing for stepped payments and school always makes a significant contribution to every child, more to those in need.
