Day visits to places of educational interest such as the Gloucester Cathedral, Bristol Zoo, SS Great Britain, the RSC, Birmingham Sea life Centre, Greystones Farm and The Black Country Museum are organised each term to enrich the curriculum.
Costs for such visits may be covered by contributions from parents or occasionally from the Parent and Teacher Association (PTA).
Every two years children in Years 5 and 6 have the opportunity to take part in a residential visit to the Tregoyd House, a PGL activity centre near Hay-on-Wye. Years 3 and 4 are introduced to residential trips with a two night stay at the Avon Wildlife trust in Chew Valley. These trips are an invaluable part of children’s emotional and social education while at the school and all children are encouraged to participate.
Costs for the visit to include travel, board and lodging, entrance fees, materials and costs of staff and travel are charged to the parents. However, no child will be excluded from the visit if their parents are unable to meet the costs.
