An exciting new experience for Year 6's residential 2019 onwards

To ensure children in future years have the opportunity to attend a residential in Y6, Mrs Moss and Mrs Hudson have been evaluating a number of possibilities for several years.

Our aims

  • Provide age appropriate activities in a safe, secure environment for all abilities

  • Retain the Y6 Residential in May to follow the Y6 SATs

  • Provide opportunities to relax and enjoy outdoor activities with friends and build friendships, teamwork and resilience.

  • Reduce the cost for families 

  • Create lasting memories.

 

One of the most highly recommended residential experiences for KS2 are Robinwood activity centres. Since over 90% of schools immediately rebook for the following year it is extremely difficult to get a new booking . However, a new fourth centre, called Maes-y-Nant (Cross Lanes near Wrexham), was opened in June 2018.

This has allowed us to secure a booking for May 2019.

The Isle of Man

The school has been visiting the Isle of Man for over 30 years with the School Journeys Association and was originally set up by our Deputy Head teacher at the time, Mr D. Bolton. Mrs Moss took over the organisation of the visit in 2005, having assisted alongside Mr Bolton since 1994.  Over 1,000 children have visited the Isle of Man with BCS and given the opportunity to  create lasting memories before moving onto a wide range of secondary schools. The pictures at the bottom of the page give an idea of the many different activities we managed to cram in!

 

A huge thank you to all the adults who have helped us over the years. We couldn't do this without you and hope you've enjoyed the experience as much as the children!

UNESCO Biosphere

In March 2016 the Isle of Man was awarded status as a UNESCO Biosphere. The Island is the only entire jurisdiction in the world to be awarded this prestigious title. This status recognises the way in which the Island’s population exists alongside a plethora of diverse natural habitats.

Fundamentally UNESCO has recognised the Isle of Man’s achievements in natural, historic and cultural conservation, environmentally sensitive economic development and the Island’s continuing commitment to education.
