Throughout the course of the year our pupils enjoy many and varied opportunities to visit sites outside of the school environment.

These field trips can be History, Science, Art, Drama or Geography focused or be part of a wider cross curricular theme, for example Settlements, and aim to supplement and reinforce the children's learning taking place in school.

In the Foundation Stage the pupils travel short distances for their out of school experiences, such as White Post Farm.

In Key Stage One journeys may be slightly further afield, for example:

  • Patchings Farm – Art and Design
  • Lakeside Theatre  Drama Workshop and Performance
  • Carsington Reservoir – Science and Geography work based on Water
  • Nottingham Castle and the Brewhouse Yard  History coming alive

At Key Stage Two, our pupils enjoy visits even further afield and in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 incorporate residential stays of two, three or four nights.

Pupils thoroughly enjoy their visits, building on the confidence of having travelled away from home with school for the shorter experiences. Visits to Staffordshire, Derbyshire Peak District, Yorkshire and the Lake District offer educational experiences for the foundation subjects as well as on site investigations and skill building and independence.
