Trips & Visits

At Halifax we believe that visits can play a key part of enriching the delivery of the curriculum, providing experiences that bring learning alive. All pupils will have an opportunity to take part in a number of educational visits which may be in the local community or further afield. Furthermore, as the children move into Key Stage 2, pupils will have the opportunity to take part in residential trips, often experiencing their first night away from home.

Year 2 are given the opportunity to visit Foxburrow Farm whilst in Year 3 the children visit Colchester Castle, developing their sense of independence in a familiar environment.

Year 4 are offered the chance to visit the local Hallowtree Scout Campsite, completing challenges during the day and learning invaluable team working skills outside of the classroom.  As the children move in to upper Key Stage 2, residential trips are introduced : Year 5 have an amazing one night stay in London, visiting Buckingham Palace, Parliament, the London Eye and seeing a West-End show; Year 6 complete day trips to Duxford Air Museum, a local field study and also a celebration day at a national attraction.

The learning experiences provided by educational visits are invaluable and we encourage all our pupils to join in. Consequently, we would always look to try and offer support in cases of financial difficulty. Parents are encouraged to contact the School Bursar, Mrs Charlotte Greenslade, in the strictest confidence about requesting help for paying for visits.
