Class Trips

We enrich our children’s learning through a variety of educational visits, residentials and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.  We believe that school trips are an important and enjoyable complement to the children’s learning.  Trips are organised to be directly relevant to topic work.

In the last couple of years, our pupils have enjoyed the following trips:

  • All Saints Church
  • Batford Springs
  • British Museum
  • Chiltern Open Air Museum
  • College Lake, Tring
  • Dell Farm
  • Florence Nightingale Museum
  • Harpenden Public Halls Film Festival
  • Hitchin Museum
  • London Science Museum
  • London Zoo
  • Luton Central Mosque
  • Mead Open Farm
  • Museum of London
  • Natural History Museum
  • Roald Dahl Museum
  • St Albans Cathedral
  • St Albans Museum
  • Tring Museum
  • Woburn Safari Park

We also invite visitors into the school to run workshops, perform plays or tell children about work they do (e.g. Punch and Judy, Magistrates Visit, Jump!, maths puzzle days, etc.). They provide memorable, practical experiences that would not otherwise be possible or as effective.

Residential

In Year 6, a residential trip gives pupils a marvellous opportunity to bond with their schoolmates and to get a taste of independence from home, whilst still in the secure care of their teachers.  They experience an exciting range of activities – abseiling, canoeing, archery, fencing and more.

Many Year 6 parents have observed how opportunities like this trip, and the always-ambitious and impressive summer term production, prepare their children effectively for the move to secondary school, encouraging them to try new things and discover confidence in their new abilities.

Pupils behave well, both in and out of the classroom, and show courtesy and respect. OFSTED 2018
