Educational Visits

Educational Visits

"Evidence shows that learning outside of the classroom brings benefits to pupils such as deeper subject learning, increased self-confidence and raised achievement. It can also help young people to understand and manage risk."

- DCFS statement, January 2008

Residential Activities

Residential visits are considered extremely beneficial for children and the school is appreciative of the willingness of the staff to organise such activities. They are always subject to review.

During their time at Brook House, children are usually given the opportunity to take part in two residential experiences, one in Year 5 and one in Year 6.

Robin Hoods Bay

In Y5 up to 40 children get the opportunity to take part in a residential to Robin Hood's Bay. The children stay at The Old School House in Robin Hood's Bay and have an activity packed week that includes: visiting the sea life centre, long walks, sand sculptures on the beach, taking a trip in a lifeboat and learning all about smugglers!

PGL Camping Residential at Caythorpe Court

In Y6 all the children have the opportunity to go to the PGL centre Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire for an action packed week of adventurous outdoor activities. The children sleep outside in tents and have a fantastic time. Activities the children take part in include: kayaking, climbing, quad biking, problem solving, and raft building to name but a few!
