Memorable Experiences

We believe there is nothing more valuable to children’s learning than first hand experiences. This is true from Nursery through to Year 6. This is why we have a specially tailored package of exciting and engaging trips and visitors lined up for every topic, every term, for every child. We believe a school trip should take place at the beginning of a new topic to spark interest and excitement and be something to reflect on in the following weeks. Our ‘engage’ week each term will have something memorable for each class.
