Educational Visits & Visitors to the School

Educational Day Visits

The outdoor classroom can be used to bring learning alive for many children and we aim where possible to use our spacious grounds to inspire and stimulate our children. There are though further benefits and opportunities to be exploited through educational day visits.


First hand experience and real life situations are hugely beneficial to creating exciting, quality learning and we value the role they play in school life.


Some of the places visited by the children recently includes:

Clandeboye Forest Rangers - Clandeboye Estate

Crawfordsburn Country Park

Walk to the local shops

Mountstewart House

War Memorial Museum, Belfast

W5 in Belfast

Titanic Museum

Bangor Library

The Wonder of Christmas at Bangor Elim

 … to name but a few

Residential Trips

Residentials are a great way of building self-confidence and increasing independence as well as allowing children to develop teamwork skills and friendships.
