The benefits provided by residential visits cannot be underestimated. Residential trips give children opportunities to broaden their horizons, experience different cultures, learn to live together with friends outside the home environment and have a great deal of fun! As a school in West London, our residential trips to rural settings not only offer a vital change of environment, but allow children to experience a whole range of activities that can’t be replicated in the classroom.
Our Residential trips programme commences in Year 3 with a two-night stay at Sayers Croft, an outward-bounds centre in Surrey. Years 4, 5 and 6 venture further afield to Moorland Hall, experiencing the Devonshire countryside, visiting the Cornish coast with a rolling programme of challenging and stimulating outdoor activities, including caving, rock-climbing, gorge walking, mountain boarding and kayaking. We also organise a range of optional trips to enrich our curriculum. In recent years children in Years 5 and 6 have benefited from art, music and sports tours. Year 6 enjoy an annual ski trip to Spital am Pyhrn, Year 5 have the opportunity to go on a Sports Tour to Jersey and the RPPS Choir toured bi-annually, visiting Champagne in the summer of 2018.
