Educational Visits


The Junior School seeks to provide a balance and breadth of outings from school and also visitors to school to support and extend our children's learning, both in the curriculum and the community.

Topics in Science, History, RE and Geography are planned as a whole Junior School unit by all the teaching staff to ensure progression of learning in the best possible way.  Many outings or visitors provide experience in cross-curricular activities and help our children to understand and appreciate the multi-cultural society in which they live.

The school minibuses are used whenever possible for both convenience and economy.  Generally, events that take place in school incur either a small or no charge to families.  Costs for trips outside of school (off site) are to cover entrance fees and contracted transport where necessary.  In addition to planned annual activities, the school seeks to take advantage of professionals visiting in the area, travelling theatres etc. whenever opportunities arise.
