Outings, Trips and Visits
Throughout their time at Kingshott, children enjoy the opportunity to go on outings. These are often linked to curriculum topics, enhancing what is taught in the classroom. Equally, the outings may be taken simply because they are interesting and there to be enjoyed.
Regular visiting speakers share their expertise and experiences and broaden children's access to many topics. These have included visits by a dance troupe, an ex-military officer on Remembrance Day, 'Charles Darwin' or an Olympic gymnast, to mention just a few. Each term concludes with a number of Enrichment Days in which the children enjoy taking part in unusual and engaging activities off-timetable.
From Year 4 to Year 8 all children go on a residential trip. Seen as part of and an extension to the curriculum, these trips are designed to offer new challenges and develop self-confidence and personal responsibility. Trips include West Runton in Norfolk, the Peak District, Scotland, France and Iceland. Optional trips exist for those interested in broadening their horizons even further. These have included a European ski trip, a water-based activity adventure to Jersey or an Exchange Programme to South Africa.
