Out of School Learning
“The only source of knowledge is experience.” ~ Albert Einstein
School trips are a great opportunity to learn outside the classroom in new, interesting and practical ways. School trips offer a huge range of benefits for students, not all of them academic. We believe that a school trip can be a truly formative experience in terms of a pupil's personal and social development too.They form an integral part of the Farnham Green experience, and each pupil at our school can expect to have at least two outside trips per year.
By experiencing another environment and/or culture, enjoying new foods and seeing different landscapes on a school trip, our children can become more confident and open to new things. This builds their cultural capital.
Examples of the trips that we run, where children will enjoy learning in action, might include:
- Our annual Year 6 residential trip
A lunch in a London restaurant
Trips to Central London museums
Theatre trips to see plays
Many local attractions in and around Woodford and Redbridge
