Yorston Lodge Trips
There is an extensive range of trips, residential visits and visiting speakers during the school year. We take full advantage of local places of interest and have strong links with senior schools to ensure that learning does not just take place in the classroom.
All classes take day trips throughout the school year to complement the themes they are studying in the classroom. Recent excursions have included a visit to the Mersey Maritime Museum in Liverpool to learn about the Titanic, a ride on the East Lancashire Railway in Bury torecreate the experiences WW2 evacuees and a visit to Chester to learn about the Romans.
Year 5 and 6 pupils also have the opportunity to take part in ‘outward bound’ trips at education centres.
Year 5 pupils spend three days at the Outdoor Education Centre in Beeston, where they take part in lots of fun, educational activities and visit local places of interest including a working farm and a castle.
Year six pupils spend three days at Culmington Manor residential activity centre in Shropshire, where they can enjoy teambuilding and confidence-building activities such as abseiling, climbing and caving.
Always a favourite among pupils, staff and parents is the annual week-long ski trip to Les Minuires in the French Alps. Every year, a party of up to 70 (including Kindergarten children) sets off to enjoy the snow, the slopes and the incredible scenery.
In the mornings, the children attend ski school and in the afternoons they take part in activities with their families or in small groups.
