All children in the Junior School have an annual opportunity to have a residential stay at a range of the very best outdoor and historical locations.
Our overnight trips start from as young as Year 3. Residential stays allow children to develop greater independence and confidence. For many, a residential trip may be the first time a child has been away from home and we work closely with parents to ensure this is a positive and fun experience.
Children in Year 3 take a walk on the wild side enjoying a residential stay at Laches Wood in Staffordshire. Children spend two nights in the log cabins and dormitory accommodation.
Year 4 children spend two nights exploring local historical attractions at Blackwell Court, near Bromsgrove as well as enjoying outward bound opportunities on site.
Year 5 spend two nights at the historic Shugborough Estate in Staffordshire and are the only year group to camp outside as part of their residential experience. Children get the opportunity to enjoy canoeing, BMX riding, orienteering and abseiling.
Year 6 students spend a whole week at Towers in Snowdonia National Park, Wales. Activities range of gorge walking to mountain climbing in the snow – a real life changing experience.
