Residential opportunities


Children in Year 2 get the opportunity to spend a whole day at Wildwood, staying until it's dark where they learn about survival, make shelters and cook in the wild.


River Dart

In Year 4 children have the opportunity to go on an overnight camp at The River Dart Country Park.  They get involved in Orienteering, Stargazing, Nature hunts, erecting their own tents and cooking dinner.  It's a lovely environment for children to work as a team on a wide range of outdoor activities that build long lasting memories.


Year 6 start their final year at primary school with their residential to Heatree House.  They get to develop their friendship bonds, work to together as a team and challenge themselves personally with a wide range of adventurous activities.
