We are Adventurous

Lessons in the classroom are regularly enhanced by trips to various places of interest locally or further afield.  We have visited the Houses of Parliament, the Tate and the Saatchi Gallery, the Tower of London, Willows Farm, St Albans Cathedral and Hazard Alley.

From Year 4 children are invited to attend annual residential trips. These trips offer pupils the opportunity to develop their independence away from home, to help them grow in confidence, develop valuable life skills amongst their peers and give them opportunities to develop expertise in a wide range of land and water based activities outside the classroom.

We have 30 after-school activities including sports clubs, Drama, Art, Cookery, Lego construction, Nature, Music Theory, Sports, Skiing, Chess, Drama, Crafts and Debating.

I just wanted to thank you for what was clearly a fabulous week.  My daughter has come back and not stopped talking about her experiences and the fun she has had, it seems like she is walking about 7ft tall.
