The benefits provided by residential visits cannot be underestimated. As a school with an urban location, our residential trips to rural settings not only offer a vital change of environment, but form shared experiences between teachers and peers that cannot be replicated in the classroom.
Our Residential trips programme commences in Year 3 with a two-night stay at Sayers Croft, an outward-bounds centre in Surrey. Years 4, 5 and 6 venture a little further afield to Moorland Hall, experiencing the Devonshire countryside and a rolling programme of challenging and stimulating outdoor activities, including caving, rock-climbing and kayaking. There is also a range of optional trips to enrich our curriculum. In recent years children in Years 4, 5 and 6 have benefited from art, music and sports tours. Year 6 enjoy a annual ski trip to Spital am Pyhrn, Year 5 have been on a Football and Netball Tour to Jersey and in the summer of 2016 the RPPS Choir toured Tuscany.
