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, pain their faces and have a glow stick disco!
Children in Years 2 can join a 2 night stay at the youth hostel in Hathersage, Derbyshire. The children enjoy a long walk in the countryside as well as visiting Peveril Castle and Carsington Water en route.
Year 3 children are able to spend two nights by the seaside visiting Whitby where enjoy a boat trip, fossil hunting, ghost walks and fish and chips!
Children in Years 4 can seek adventure on the PGL camp which includes a variety of outdoor adventurous activities like raft building, climbing, archery and abseiling. The camp is for 3 nights and is situated at Caythorpe in Nottinghamshire.
Children in Years 4 can take part in an overnight camp in school whilst learning some key survival skills. This sleepover in the hall is led by Adventures Into.
Children in Year 5 visit the historic city of York and stay at a youth hostel for 3 nights as part of the team building development of our oldest pupils. This year it is taking place at the start of the year to establish strong foundations for the coming year.
