Trips and Residentials

The week is a wonderful week, cited by the children as amongst their best memories of school life. Payment for these trips is planned for and managed so that payments are made in stages throughout the year.

As part of our commitment to real experiences at the core of learning, we plan for the children to attend special trips in the local area and further afield :

In Reception (age 4-5) we take the children to the farm at Lancing College, the local library and around and about in Shoreham.

In Year 1 (age 5-6) children visit the beach, a Castle and Woods Mill.

Year 2 (age 6-7) the children visit Wakehurst Place.

In addition to these trips we also take groups of children to various art galleries in London and to the Brighton Pavilion. We also enrich the children's learning with visits from The Rainbow Theatre Company, local authors and local services such as the fire brigade.

Each year, our Year 6 pupils have the opportunity to spend a week at an outdoor activity centre with the emphasis on team building and outdoor activities such as abseiling, raft building and climbing.

Year 3 (age 7-8) children visit HMS Victory in Portsmouth Harbour and Wakehurst Place.

In Year 4 (age 8-9) we take the children on a theatre trip to London or Brighton In Year 5 (age 9 -10) we take the children to the observatory at Herstmonceaux and ice skating in Worthing and in Year 6 (age 10-11) the children spend time at the River Adur and the Imperial War Museum in London.

Throughout the school year we have visits from Sir Teachalot who immerses the children in a wonderful historical enrichment day. The focus for these days has been World War 1, Knights and Castles, and the Vikings.

Wherever possible we try to make the most of opportunities that do not incur a cost however the large majority of trips will incur some cost and we ask parents for a voluntary contribution towards this . The school never makes a profit from school trips and does infact spend a large sum on subsidising the cost of visitors and school trips.
