Our children are very lucky to go on a variety of educational visits throughout the school year. Each visit is specifically tailored to coincide with a relevant learning topic and enriches the teaching and learning by taking it outside of the classroom and into a practical setting.
We also welcome visitors into school who can add value to the children's learning.
Please find links below to some of the places we visit and who visit us.
