School Trips and Events

Educational trips and visits
These are a vital part of the Lower Junior curriculum and vary each year according to our ever-changing curriculum – please refer to the News section and calendar for updated information and forthcoming trips. Recent trips have included Year 2 visiting Hampton Court Palace and Year 1 enjoying a concert at the Barbican. For photos of recent trips please go to the relevant form section of the Parents’ Area.
