Heathfield offers residential opportunities for all children from Year 1 to Year 6.
Although not quite a residential away from home, we give our year 1 children the opportunity to stay at school later into the evening to roast marshmallows, create glow in the dark art and shadow puppets, paint their faces and have a glow stick disco!
Children in Years 2 can join a 1 night stay at Walesby. The children enjoy a walk in the countryside as well as low ropes, orienteering, assault courses and climbing.
Year 3 children can spend a night under canvas at school, building friendships and keeping the teachers up all night! If the weather is good they will be in tents outside. If the weather is wet they will pitch the tents in the hall.
Children in Year 4 can seek adventure in Castleton, Derbyshire. They experience the views of the High Peaks from Mam Tor. They also visit local caves and stay at the Youth Hostel.
Children in Year 5 can take part in an overnight camp in school whilst learning some key survival skills.
Our Year 6 children spend three days in London exploring our capital city. During the visit the they have a trip on the London Eye, enjoy a cruise on the Thames, visit the Science and Natural History museums and see some of the city’s most famous sights.
