School trips and educational visits are unparalleled in their ability not only to enhance classroom learning but also to broaden pupils’ horizons and develop their independence.
Given everything London has to offer, we are able to take boys on regular trips to the capital’s world-class museums, galleries, aquariums, farms and theatres, and we are also regular visitors to the green surroundings Richmond Park for our Forest School sessions.
Day-long trips are planned to complement the topics boys are learning throughout the year. There is also a calendar of annual enrichment trips that includes a geographical excursion to Iceland, skiing in Italy and a visit to the National Football Centre at St George’s Park.
In the summer term, all boys take part in residential trips at activity centres or places catering for curriculum-based activities. Examples of recent destinations include: Years 3 and 4 exploring the world of bush craft in rural Hertfordshire; Years 5 and 6 boys travelling to the historical sites of Normandy in France; and the senior boys in Years 7 and 8 visiting the undulating coastline of Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland.
All term-time or curriculum-related trips are included within school fees while there is an additional cost for larger, optional residential excursions to places such as Iceland.
Falcons boys enjoyed an adventurous start to the school year, as they were whisked off on an all-school Residential Trip to kick off their Autumn Term with a bang!
Outdoor Learning and activities over the two days included climbing, archery, shelter-building, camp-fire lighting and much more! The boys boldly embodied their Falcons Learning habits of Creativity, Resilience, Reflectiveness, Independence and Courage to navigate challenges and embrace risks, boosting their self-confidence and inspiring their collaborative problem-solving approaches.
Fun, friendship and memories made! Here’s to the next year of Falcons adventures, boys!
