School trips and visits are an integral part of the education of children at Great Rollright Primary School. We value the opportunities such visits offer our pupils and the commitment of staff and adults undertaking them. Trips include class visits aimed at bringing learning alive and providing first-hand experience; extra-curricular outings such as activities with the school choir or sporting events; and attending or taking part in performances or competitions.
Children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 have the opportunity to take part in residential visits. These are planned to provide new and exciting experiences. Pupils in Years 3 & 4 build teamwork and extend their forest school learning during KS1 by visiting Bush Craft Centre on the Cornbury estate; and our Year 5 and 6 young people take part in a multi-activity week at Hooke Court, Dorset, where they experience orienteering, low ropes, rocket launching, archery and lots more. In the past, we were fortunate to run an exchange programme between ourselves and a Finnish school and although this has now ended, we hope to be able to create a similar experience in the future.
