Residential Trips

Year 5

In Year 5 pupils have an opportunity to experience a three-day Winter Explorers residential at Bowles Rocks, Tunbridge Wells. This program includes climbing/scrambling, skiing and kayaking in a heated swimming pool - all sports we struggle to offer in our normal school environment. During the evening, teachers run sessions including a disco, film evening and a talent show.  Meals are home cooked and hearty and children and staff also get a well deserved hot chocolate at the end of the day. Children stay in dorms in chalet-style buildings with our staff on hand close by.

Although the weather is colder this time of year, all these sessions are highly active so the groups stay warm. The centre has fluffy caving suits and full water proofs to keep people warm.

Year 6

As children adapt to the challenges brought about by SATS and Secondary school preparation, an off-site outdoor adventure can be an outdoor education opportunity to build on the skills they need to help them thrive and excel as they move forward to the next stage of their education. We believe it is also the perfect way to celebrate and simply have fun with their peers before going their separate ways in Year 7.

We have chosen for our pupils in previous years to experience two nights under canvas in a tented village of bell tents in which children will had real beds - yes, real bunk beds! We have partnered with Wildchild Adventures who offer this experience through their site in Hertfordshire.

We are currently reviewing this provision and look forward to announcing our plans for year 6 this year.
