Educational Visits and Outings

Every term, all year groups go on at least one visit. These may be tied into the curriculum or to enhance social development.

Previous whole school trips and activities include: Mud Larking on the River Thames, a trip on the Emirates Skyline, visit to the Walking with the Dinosaurs exhibition and taking part in the Thames Festival.

London is used as an extension of the Faraday classroom, with teachers planning school trips as part of the curriculum and using them to enhance the children's learning. Recently classes have been taken to visit: Sir John Soane's Museum, the Tate, Museum of London Docklands and the Geffrye Museum. 

The younger children use minibuses on their trips, but as children progress through the school, learning to use public transport is part of their school trip experience.

In years 4, 5 and 6 the children take part in a residential trip in the summer term.  Trips are typically to a Field Studies Centre or to a Bushcraft survival skills base and last from between 2 to 3 nights.  Faraday School pupils often join pupils from their West London sister school, Maple Walk.
