Residential Trips Statement of Intent

Shanklea Primary School stimulates and motivates its KS2 pupils with a range of residential courses.

The school programme includes residential visits for Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 pupils, which strengthens pupils’ experience of the outside world as well as their social and emotional development.  The experience provides rich opportunities to learn new knowledge and skills within a creative and adventurous framework.

  • Year 4 attend a coastal residential in Alnwick, Northumberland
  • Year 5 attend an adventurous outdoor education residential in Robinwood, Alston, Cumbria
  • Year 6 attend a cultural residential in Edinburgh.

Educational Trips

Frequent, high quality outside visits enrich curricular provision.  This year pupils have visited Arbeia, Beamish Museum, Whitehouse Farm, The Glendale Show, Hancock Museum, Holy Island, Woodhorn Colliery and Fenwick’s department store, to name but a few.
