Day Trips and Journeys

Day trips

We sometimes take the children out of school for visits to a variety of interesting places.  These include the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, British Museum, Kew Gardens, Battersea Power Station, Greenwich Planetarium, the Tower of London, the Museum of London and the Imperial War Museum.  These trips are typically linked to the curriculum and therefore considered of great importance. We normally ask parents/carers to help contribute to the cost of such outings.  Please visit our Gallery Page for photographs of these trips.

School journeys

Each year we hope to organise school journey for the Y6 children. All children are offered a place at Kingswood Activity Centre in Kent. Grants are available towards some of the cost, but can only be paid once and are reviewed annually. Please ask your teacher for details. Great attention is given to ensure children understand the safety aspects and code of conduct of their journey.

We feel the purpose of a school journey is for the children to become familiar with another environment and to take part in activities and visit a place which are new to them.

There are of course times when we cannot make the numbers required for a school trip to go ahead.

 Local visits

There are times when children make local visits, normally on foot, to the library or local points of interest such as Blythe Hill, Horniman Museum, Devonshire Reserve, One Tree Hill Allotments and Creekside Discovery Centre. They also go swimming at Forest Hill Pools, using the school mini-bus as transport.

Parents will have completed a permission slip on arrival at our school and this will last for the duration of their time at Stillness Junior School.
