We encourage educational visits and activities as an integral part of the life of Thornden. They help to contribute to the ethos and vision of the school in developing students experience of the curriculum and beyond. Educational visits should run on the basis that they contribute to, complement the curriculum or offer something that is uniquely available through this type of activity.
Educational Visits can provide stimulus and support to work being covered as part of the school curriculum. It maybe that a visit provides an effective stimulus at the start of a unit of work. Alternatively, an educational visit can used to extend the engagement of students with the wider world. Wherever or whatever the venue, our teachers should ensure that the educational benefits to the children are maximised.
