Enriching the Curriculum

We enrich our curriculum through high quality day trips, overnight residential stays and visitors to the school.

Our thoughtfully planned programme covers a range of topics linked to the curriculum and personal development in a fun, relevant and engaging way. 

Enriching the curriculum through quality trips is of great benefit to children; giving a boost to their self-confidence, enabling them to foster better relationships, discover new learning opportunities and allowing more time for learning to be embedded.
