The school provides a rich and stimulating range of visits to broaden the education of the children. It is important to us that all pupils learn about the world by getting out of the classroom to experience it first-hand.
Recent locations for day visits include:
Residential school trips can hold memories for life, and at Warwick Prep, we aim to ensure the experiences for girls in Middle Two, Upper One and Upper Two do just that! Whether camping with friends in big safari tents at a small holding in Wales, staying in a magnificent chateau in Northern France or being enthused by learning about exciting scientific issues at an inspiring carbon footprint Field Studies Centre, all older girls are encouraged to participate in our three annual residential trips. In addition, girls can also choose to take part in a biennial ski-trip organised through PGL.
Ensuring our trips are appropriate for the stage of each pupils’ development, we carefully choose the venues and activities for each residential trip. Currently:
Middle Two girls spend three nights at Naturesbase Camp in Wales, learning to work together, living sustainable lives, sleeping in tents with their friends and simply ‘being away from home’. We enjoy sole occupancy of the Naturesbase Camp during our stay.
Upper One girls visit Chateau du Perron, close to Coutances in Normandy. Here, the year group enjoy the freedom and security of the chateau’s grounds and explore local places of interest including the market town of Coutances, The Bayeux Tapestry and Le Mont St Michel. During their five nights away we enjoy sole occupancy at the chateau.
Upper Two girls spend four nights at Margam Discovery Centre, a beacon centre of the Field Studies Council. They work hard to extend their scientific, geographic and ecologic knowledge through a series of outdoor learning sessions involving a river study, survival day and habitat diversity study.
