As part of the South West Schools’ Federation we take part in a number of residential visits.

The aim of our residential is to provide a big experience to develop the children both their education and confidence. We don’t expect that children go on every residential visit as they are expensive. As a family we’d hope you will read through the following information and make a decision, as a family, as to which trips you will send your children on. We know that the trips are expensive but hope that with advance warning you can start to prepare to pay for them by planning them into your year.

Year 2

We aim to provide a residential with a stop over. In 2017 we went to the Blue Reef Aquarium where the children slept in front of SHARKS! This is usually planned near to the end of Y2.


Year 3: Cornwall – October

The trip for Y3 children is to Cornwall in October. This is a 3 night residential where the children stay in the Eden Project and visit Newquay Aquarium, Flambards, Geevor Tim Mine and St Michael’s Mount. This trip runs from a Tuesday to Friday and in 2017 cost £240.












Year 4 – Bristol March

The trip for the Y4 children is to Bristol. More details to follow.












Year 5: Dorset – April

The Y5 children will be going to Dorset. This is a 4 night residential. The trip includes Monkey World, Beaulieu and Buckers Hard, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Moors Valley and Splashdown, Longleat then home on the Friday. The 2017 cost for Dorset was £290.



The Y6 children will be going to London. We stay in Kensington at Baden Powell House and from there we visit the Science museum/Imax, Houses of Parliament workshop, a West end musical, the Tower of London, the Golden Hinde, go far a Chinese meal, Madame Tussauds, the London Eye, the Natural History Museum. This year the cost is projected to be around £360 and we will be using a bus as our main transport to London and to each venue.


Barton Hall PLG – JUNE

Every year we also put on a Key Stage 2 Residential to Barton Hall where the children undertake adventurous activities like climbing, quad biking, archery, canoeing, skiing etc. Any child in KS2 can go. We go on the Friday and Return on the Monday in June. This trip was £210 in 2017.
