The formal curriculum is enriched through a wide variety of educational visits within Glasgow and beyond.
These range from the Scotland Street Museum and Science Centre to New Lanark, Lochwinnoch Nature Reserve and both Stirling and Edinburgh Castles. The School actively encourages parental involvement in children’s learning and welcomes their participation in these visits.
P7 Trip to Lake District
One of the highlights of the children’s Primary school careers is the P7 residential visit, which hasrecently taken place at Newlands Adventure Centre.
The children are accommodated in a converted graphite mill, set in extensive grounds in the secluded Newlands valley, near Keswick in the Lake District. The visit usually takes place in June and, for four days, the children enjoy a range of challenging activities including climbing, abseiling, kayaking, ghyll scrambling, orienteering and high rope courses supervised by qualified instructors. Lasting friendships are made and it is ideal preparation for the children’s transfer to the Secondary School where greater independence is expected.
