Every year in the Summer Term, Year 6 and some of Year 5 go on a residential trip from Monday to Friday. The aim is to give the children a broader life experience, to learn new skills and to increase children’s independence before they go to secondary school. In recent years they have taken part in abseiling, archery, go-karting, river walking, mackerel fishing and visited many different historic sites.
In 2010 they went to Swanage in Dorset and enjoyed many beach activities. In 2011 they went to Gaveston hall in Sussex http://www.gavestonhall.com/ and amongst other things had a day of canoeing and kayaking and since 2012 they have been going to Kench Hill in Kent http://www.kenchhill.co.uk/
