Residential Centres

ENRICHING THE CURRICULUM

Residential trips are great because you have loads of fun and you learn how to be away from your family, which makes you more confident. “ Y6 Pupil
Our school always look for opportunities to try to enrich the Curriculum. During their time at St Margaret’s, children will have the chance to go on Residential visits or school/class trips. We feel these are an excellent opportunity for children to extend their learning whilst developing their own social skills.

There are many other trips that classes attend throughout the year. These may include such places as local Art Museums, local places of worship, Hartlebury Castle.
Our first residential visit takes place in Year1 and Year 2 where children go to Edgemond for three days. They have a wide variety of experiences including pond dipping, outdoor activities, environmental art work, simple map reading, village studies, habitat investigations and general animal/vegetation investigations.
In Year 5 and Year 5 our children often go for a week to the Frank Chapman Centre or Plas Gwynant.
