Visits and Trips

School visits and trips


We provide a broad range of activities to enrich and inspire learning. Parents are invited to contribute towards the cost of these activities; each visit/trip is carefully evaluated in order that unreasonable demands are not made upon parents. A large proportion of the cost of visits and trips comes from the school budget.


Visits and visitors are a key part of our Learning Challenge Curriculum. Recently we have been to Nell Bank, The Deep, Skelton Grange, Ledston Estate and Leeds City Museum. Our amazing visitors have included the Young Shakespeare Company, Ian's Mobile Farm, Zoolab and author James Nicol.


Our Year 6 pupils have an annual residential visit, usually in the Autumn Term, to Ingleborough Hall outdoor Education Centre. Team building activities, emotional awareness and personal development are a valuable part of this residential. Year 5 enjoy a three day residential to Castle Head Field Centre, developing geography and science skills and knowledge. Year 4 visit Nell Bank for the day, taking part in a range of exciting outdoor activities which can include den building, archery, exploring streams and learning about wild creatures.
