Pupils are offered a wide range of trips through out their time at Bilton Grange. Educational trips, that are based around the curriculum, support pupils’ learning of topics. These trips commence in Reception with a visit to Paradise Found Farm, followed by a trip to Warwick Castle in Year 1 to cement learning in a more practical way.
Other Educational trips include Year 3’s visit to Lunt Roman Fort where they have the chance to climb wooden ramparts, use swords and practice their authentic roman military manoeuvers.
While learning about Tudors our Juniors visit the Tudor and Georgian house, Sulgrave Manor where their learning is brought to life through role play and costumed characters.
Our Year 7 see history come alive whilst visiting the historic Bosworth Battlefield to journey along the medieval pathway of the War of the Roses. These are just a selection of the wide ranging trips our pupils enjoy.
Pupils take part in residential trips from an early age, building both confidence and independence. Our Year 2 children are introduced gently to one night away within the familiar school surrounds staying in our boarding department. A fun filled and activity packed afternoon allows children to experience this first time away from home with familiar faces, friends and of course teddies.
Year 3 and Juniors enjoy a trip to the Mount Cook Adventure Centre in Derbyshire to develop their teamwork skills and self-confidence through building rafts, climbing and team challenges.
Blackwell Outdoor Activity centre in Worcestershire is the destination for our middle school where pupils stay in glamping pods, enjoy abseiling and orienteering.
In Year 7, our pupils head to Northern France to visit the American Cemetery in Omaha and the Normandy beaches gives the pupils a chance to reflect on sacrifices made during WWII. They also visit the medieval Bayeux Tapestry and enjoy wonderful French crepes!
A final residential for Year 8 pupils after completing their common entrance exam is a trip to Skern Lodge Outdoor Centre in Devon where they can forge memories and strengthen bonds before moving on to senior school.
