Year 6 children are taken on a residential educational visit for one week and their termly work will usually be planned to incorporate this visit into the curriculum. The purpose of these visits is also to prepare the children for their imminent change to secondary School and to help them to be more self-reliant. The Local Authority rules and regulations pertaining to educational visits are followed.
There is a shorter School journey in Year 5 the purpose of which is to prepare the children for the longer residential trip, as well as to provide a range of interesting educational activities. Year 5 usually stay for three days at a regional education centre.
The School places considerable emphasis on other educational visits. Every class participates in day excursions to places of interest during the academic year. There is usually one every term.
In addition, there are occasionally workshops for children in, for example, music and drama provided by outside professionals in School time.
