"Camping at Mill on the Brue was so exciting, and I discovered that I wasn't scared of heights!" Year 4 pupil

We offer a rich mix of school trips and activity days to enhance the children's learning and experiences; these include a week in France for children in Year 6, a week in Osmington Bay for Year 5, and three days at Mill on the Brue for Year 4. 

Throughout the year,  visits are planned for each year group to bring topic work to life. Pupils visit local museums, historical sites such as the Holburne Museum, We the Curious, The Bristol Aquarium, Wild Place, Montacute House, M-Shed in Bristol and  SS Great Britain. Many themed events are held on the school site, such as a Shakespeare Week, World Book Week and Maths Day as well as themed fundraising days. Children frequently enter local inter-school Maths and Knowledge Challenges hosted by Douglas Buchanan.

We welcome guest speakers to assemblies on a regular basis as well as visitors to individual classrooms. Often these are parents or friends with a particular expertise who can provide that extra special bit of insight that can strike a chord with young children.

We offer a fantastic choice of extra-curricular activities every week - from pottery and chess to sewing club and Samba Band. We run over 65 clubs at lunchtime and after school so the children can enjoy variety. For the majority of activities the emphasis is on enjoyment and exploring new interests. Some of the clubs are by invitation only. This enables us to provide the children with opportunities appropriate for their level. To find out more, download the latest club list in our Parent Hub. Our clubs can be categorized into those that are more creative, more active, involve music and drama, or provide challenge and knowledge.
