Residential Trips

In Years 5 and 6 we offer the girls the opportunity to take part in a range of residential trips. Residential trips offer the added dimension of developing their social skills as well as having huge educational value.

In the Autumn term of Year 5 there is a weekend residential Outdoor Activities Trip to Manor Adventure in Shropshire. This involves the girls in team building activities and personal challenges which help build relationships as the girls support and encourage each other as they face their fears.

In Year 6 the girls have the opportunity to go on the annual one week Ski Trip to Austria and a 3 day visit to a Chateau in St Omer, France where they practise their French.
