The benefits of real life experiences and trips

Elmhurst School for Boys

25th May 2018 | Headmaster's Blog

The benefits of real life experiences and trips to enhance learning are in abundance and here at Elmhurst, we firmly believe that an education extending beyond the classroom, enriches the boys’ understanding and helps to consolidate their learning, as well as making it more meaningful.

If you have read my previous blog on Forest School or the news report following Year 5’s visit to the ‘Journey to Justice’ exhibition, I am sure you will agree that the boys benefit hugely from these opportunities and experiences.

This year, boys from across the year groups have enjoyed trips to a variety of places, including the Globe Theatre, Saatchi Gallery, Sutton Life Centre, the Science Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Croydon Ecology Centre and a day trip to Saint Omer in France and our Year 6 pupils are very much looking forward to their residential trip coming up later in the term (we look forward to sharing photos in a future newsletter). During the residential experience, boys live with each other and develop their interpersonal skills, helping them to become better leaders, as well as building trust and respect.

Not only do these experiences enhance their learning, but the boys will be left with many fond memories which will last long after they have left the school.
