From June 2021, we have resumed a number of educational visits and also domestic residential trips, as per government guidance.
Prior to Covid-19, each term, most year groups will have a trip away from school with the opportunity for residential and foreign trips as the children progress through Key Stage 2.
As part of each child’s education at Chiddingstone, they will participate in a wide range of curriculum led enrichment activities throughout their school life. Some of these will be in the form of workshops in school, provided by companies such as The Royal Observatory, the Science Museum and Steps in Time. Each day we have enrichment activities based on the creative curriculum such as cookery, ICT, Spanish, gardening, art, music and sewing, provided by the teaching staff and parent volunteers. We also organise intensive swimming lessons for each year group for 1 week every year at Tonbridge School’s wonderful pool facilities.
Examples of these are:
Lingfield Wildlife Centre
Bough Beech Reservoir
The V&A museum
The National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery
The Science Museum
Imperial War Museum
Annual trips to a West End Show such as “Wicked” and “School of Rock”
Camping trips to Broomlands Farm
Residential trips to the PGL centre at Windmill Hill and Kingswood on the Isle of Wight.
Foreign trips to Barcelona and Seville.
