Outings & Field Trips
Educational visits, guest speakers and visiting workshops play an important part in our approach to learning. Engaging outdoor field trips and other visits seek to enhance and stimulate pupils’ interest so that children value a lifelong love of learning. Pupils benefit from a wide variety of visiting experts such as vets, doctors, artists, scientists and actors. Pupils of all ages enjoy the inspirational settings of near and far such as Hampton Court, the Science Museum, the Guildhall School of Music in the Barbican and the Globe Theatre. Such educational experiences offer a massive range of learning opportunities and styles with an enriching, unique "hands on" approach. Some visits are for a whole day but others may be residential.
Juniper Hall is a Field Studies Council Centre in Mickleham, near Box Hill in Surrey. Year 4 are given the opportunity to study science and geography as part of a four day residential trip in the Trinity Term. Parents are invited to a Parents' Evening in the Michaelmas Term where they are given all the relevant information by the staff organising the trip. At this meeting we also discuss health and safety issues and parents are asked to fill out a health questionnaire. Projects and presentations prepared by pupils who have already attended the course are available on this evening.
Year 6 Trip to France
In the Trinity Term, the Year 6 girls are given the opportunity to spend a week in France. This gives them the chance to use the French they have learned and to experience French culture first-hand. It is also an opportunity for consolidating social skills and for cross-curricular activities. Information regarding preparation for the trip is given at a series of meetings, dates for these meetings are published in the Gazette and termly Calendar.
