Year 5 School Journey
Every child in Year 5 has the opportunity to attend the School Journey - a four day, three night residential outdoor education and adventure experience with their class teacher and other Fern Hill support staff.
In recent years the children have visited Kingswood’s Grosvenor Hall in Kent, a 50 acre activity centre set in the grounds of a former manor house. Grosvenor Hall has a fantastic range of indoor and outdoor adventure and recreational activities including an extensive ropes park with zip wire and 3G swing, indoor swimming pool complex and sports facilities.
Our school journey combines education, challenging adventure activities and fun evening entertainment with the camaraderie of overnight stays and an experience shared and offers the children an unforgettable life-changing adventure in a safe, controlled and nurturing environment. The children return with new life skills, more confidence and a better understanding of the world. Spending time away from home also offers them a chance to embrace adventure and take calculated risks, face new challenges and build their self-esteem together with their friends.
This year the School Journey will rtake place in May.
