Trips, holidays and workshops
School trips and workshops are a fantastic way of bringing the curriculum to life, enhancing classroom learning, knowledge and skills in a fun and exciting environment. We make full use of our central London location with regular outings planned for all children to local educational and historical sites such as The Albert Memorial, The Houses of Parliament, The Wetlands Centre and The National Gallery.
In addition to our trips beyond the school gates, we also hold a rich mix of workshops within school. The children love these workshops and they often prove to be a highlight of the year. In the past workshops have included an Atoms Workshop with researchers from Imperial College, a visit from concert pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, a workshop with author Tom Palmer, and as part of our Shakespeare Festival, a workshop with Timothy West CBE.
We also offer a range of residential Class holidays that bring academic subjects to life and tap into children’s innate sense of adventure from Y3 onwards. They provide an opportunity for children to take the first tentative steps of independence, in the supportive environment of teachers and friends.
Class holidays destinations include an overnight stay at Minstead Environmental Study Centre, a cultural trip to Northumberland taking in Durham Cathedral and Hadrian’s Wall, a week in Somerset and camping at “Bushcraft Camp” in Oxfordshire.
