We believe that outside visits and visitors to the school greatly benefit the learning experience for the children, bringing learning to life and adding variety and diversity to their school days. Visits may be arranged specifically to support the planned curriculum such as The Verulamium Museum in St. Albans, The Victorian School in Hitchin, The Natural History Museum or they may be planned as a one-off learning experience such as a trip to Ironbridge in Telford, Whipsnade Zoo, Wembley Stadium or our younger children’s visit to Mead Open Farm. We regularly visit a range of Places of Worship to support our Religious Education curriculum.
Some of our visitors to the school include John Harris, ‘Greatest Storyteller in the World’, Impeyan Zoo that brought a range of animals including chinchillas, meercats and snakes to the school, Animal Ark where we were visited by a range of farm animals such as pigs, lambs, Specsavers, The Guide Dog association, the ambulance service and a visit from a real life Astronaut.
We also regularly hatch our own chicks and watch their development in their early days, before they went to start their new life on a farm.
We actively seek out opportunities such as these to support our aim to give children a true love of learning so without doubt there will be new and exciting treats in store within the coming year!
