Trips and Residentials
Safely managed educational visits with a clear purpose are an indispensable part of a broad and balanced curriculum. They are an opportunity to extend the learning of all pupils, including enrichment of their understanding of themselves, others and the world around them. They can be a catalyst for improved personal performance, promote a lifetime interest and in some cases lead to professional fulfilment. Educational visits are to be encouraged. At Wickersley Partnership Trust we strongly believe that educational visits are a vital part of our children’s learning.

58 students from years 10, 11, 12 and 13 visited the British Army at the Strensall Barracks in Yorkshire. The students experienced life in the Army stopping for two nights in the barracks and getting to meet dozens of different Army personnel.
The students took part in team building command tasks plus many different physical and mental challenges. They had the opportunity to work with the Black Rats, under the command of Major Humphries from HQ at Catterick.
Rawmarsh Ashwood Primary School
Year 6 students visited Scarborough and stayed over for 4 nights. They did lots of fun activities such as rock-pooling and bowling, and visited places such as the RNLI station in Scarborough, Scarborough Castle and Whitby Abbey.
There was of course lots of time to enjoy the beautiful beaches of our east coast!
