Once a term, every class enjoys an educational visit linked to their topic.
Educational visits are an essential part of the Faraday offering, bringing learning to life and helping children make meaningful links to the world around them.
We use London as an extension of the Faraday classroom. We take every opportunity to take our pupils out of school to explore the world around them.
Previous whole school trips and activities include mud larking on the River Thames, a trip on the Emirates Skyline, a visit to the Walking with Dinosaurs exhibition and taking part in the Thames Festival.
We have also been to visit Sir John Soane’s Museum, the Tate Modern, the Museum of London Docklands and the Geffrye Museum.
Faraday pupils often join children from Maple Walk – their sister school in North West London – for joint trips. This broadens their friendship groups and social skills. They have lots of fun and create lasting memories together.
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 between two to three nights.
