At Robert Le Kyng we believe a lot of valuable learning can be done outside of the classroom environment.
Therefore we provide many exciting trips that will challenge our children in ways staying in the class room simply cannot do. Going on outdoor learning trips makes children more resilient, more determined and more confident as individuals. However, they become better at working as part of a team. It also teaches children to be more organised and take responsibility for themselves. Residential and outdoor learning can prepare children for the real world they will face when they leave school… and of course, residential trips are great fun too!
We have a programme of outdoor learning that covers the whole of Key Stage 2 and a small part of KS1.
Our programme is extremely exciting and challenging, but as Robert Le Kyng teachers run most of it, hopefully this makes it affordable to our parents.
