Trips & Visitors
The curriculum in all year groups is supported by a range of interesting trips which encourages learning beyond the classroom.
"The curriculum is enriched through numerous educational visits, such as the Year 5 residential outing to Norfolk and the Year 6 trip to France, as well as day trips to museums and facilities in nearby towns." ISI Report 2016Here are some examples of the trips our teachers organise:

During their time in the Prep school the girls will go on two residential trips. In Year 5 they go to Norfolk for a week to study coastlines and habitats.
In Year 6 the girls spend 4 days in France, attending a French school in the mornings and visiting other attractions during the afternoons.
There is also a bi-annual ski trip during the Easter holidays open to pupils and their parents.
