Trips & Residentials
At Sussex Road Primary School, we strive to provide all children with a range of rich extracurricular opportunities. Our curriculum Enquiries are enhanced with experiences in school and further afield. Children benefit tremendously from memorable learning that takes them to new places.
In addition to day trips, children in Years 5 and 6 will experience residential visits. In Year 5, we provide a 2 night stay at Bewl Water which provides a stepping stone to the Year 6 School Journey; 4 nights in Devon. These experiences are pivotal in developing independence and responsibility at an age when children should be confident to be away from home for a short period of time.
Bewl Water Residential - Year 5
Children in Year 5 will travel to Bewl Water Outdoor Education Centre for a two night residential. They will experience a broad range of outdoor adventurous activities such as: abseiling, stand-up paddle boarding, raft building, archery and bush craft. The relatively local stay away from home will ensure they have the confidence to enjoy their trip to Devon in Year 6.
The cost for the 2022-2023 trip is £185.00. Parents are invited to use a payment plan in Year 5.
School Journey - Year 6
The 5 day residential trip provides our children to develop significantly as an independent individual whilst making some life time memories. We stay in a beautiful Georgian Manor House on the edge of Dartmoor with vast grounds for the children to explore. A range of different day trips not only enhance the learning that has taken place in school but also promote teamwork, resilience and risk taking.
The cost for the 2022-2023 trip is £375.00. Parents are invited to use a payment plan from September in Year 6.
