Activities and Outings
The timetable is very comprehensive and is extended by clubs and societies which operate for the older children during lunch breaks and after normal school. In addition to traditional sports, these include:
• ballet and modern dance
• Scottish country dancing
• board games
• science / nature
• pond / gardening club
• wind band
• string quartet
with recorder club and ball skills for the younger children.
“The quality of relationships between staff and pupils and between pupils themselves is a great strength. Pupils are considerate and work and play happily together.”
Throughout the year, children in all classes are taken on trips and expeditions to a variety of locations. In Year 6, pupils are given the opportunity to attend a week-long educational holiday in France which combines both language and adventurous activities. For the Upper Juniors, a biennial ski trip to France takes place in the Spring term.
