Trips and Residentials
We believe that taking children off- site provides an excellent opportunity to learn through practical first-hand experience and to generalise their learning in real life situations. There are a variety of trips that your child will have the opportunity to participate in linked to their learning. The older children in the school have the opportunity to spend up to four nights away at an approved residential site and participate in all sorts of exciting activities whilst there.
Our Year 6 children spend up to a week at Fairthorne Manor during the Spring/ Summer term.
Fairthorne Manor is an area of parkland and woodlands in Hampshire, England, near the village of Botley. It has an area of 111 acres, including a golf course. Fairthorne Manor is primarily a children's outdoors activity centre, and offers a variety of activities including kayaking, canoeing, sailing, abseiling, climbing, archery, aerial runway and raft-building.
