Trips and Residentials
We run regular Residentials across Alumnis Multi-Academy Trust, which give the children a wide range of experiences.
Year 2: Shark Sleepover at the National Aquarium in Plymouth. We sleep in front of the Eddystone Reef!
Year 3: Residential to Cornwall. We stay at the fabulous Snoozeboxes at the Eden Project.
Year 4: Residential to Bristol, staying at Bristol Harbourside and taking in the sights and sounds of this wonderful city.
Year 5: Residential to Dorset. We stay in a hotel in Bournemouth that we've used for years and have a brilliant time exploring this beautiful part of the country.
Year 6: Residential to London. For our Year 6 this trip is a lovely way to round off their trips with us. We stay in Kensington, take in the museums, Houses of Parliament, a West End show, the London Eye - you name it, we do it! It's a busy week but we all have a great time.
Across KS2 we offer a trip to Barton Hall in June as well which gives the children the chance to experience some adventurous activities.
We also run regular WOW experiences within each School which work with the Curriculum.
We always try and give families a reasonable amount of time to budget towards such trips - usually by providing costings and a payment plan about six months before the trip takes place. We are always happy to discuss a different payment plan if that helps you budget for a trip. There are also other organisations and charities which are worth considering applying to for financial aid. Here are some of the ones we can direct you to:
- The Devon Educational Trust
- The Tiverton Co-Operative Learning Partnership has access to some grants, including the Tiverton Educational Foundation which may be able to help.
- St Michael and All Angels Church has a small charity that you can also apply to. Either speak to the office for contact details or contact the Church Office on 01398 332885 and ask to speak to the Church warden.
- Viscount Amory's Charitable Trust was created in 1962 by the Viscount Amory, Member of Parliament for Tiverton and, from 1958 to 1960, Chancellor of the Exchequer. One of the Trust's aims is to support the people of Devon through their communal activities in various spheres; one of which is education.
