Educational visits

Pupils will be taken out of school to visit places which will enhance and support their curriculum studies. These visits usually take place during the school day but in Year 4 and in Year 6 there is the opportunity to take part in residential visits. This is an excellent time for social development, as well as extending their learning in several curriculum subjects.

All classes have the chance at least once during the year to visit places of interest connected with their work. Places visited include Whipsnade Zoo, the Science Museum and Holdenby House. Parents are asked for a voluntary contribution towards the costs of these visits.

We encourage visits to school from live performers and invite several different companies to perform for us during the school year. We also benefit from outside organisations like the police force and the fire service who give safety advice and support to the school.
