Learning beyond the Classroom

 

We take full advantage of our wonderful surroundings within, as well as, beyond the extensive school grounds. We value opportunities to take learning beyond our local area, having gained the Intermediate International School Award.

  • Well-established forest school area
  • Summer bell-boating regatta on the River Avon. 
  • Whole school outdoor learning days on themes such as ‘art in nature’, practical problem solving – can you erect a tent without instructions?!
  • Performances - singing at 3 Counties, Eckstock
