Educational Visits

Stoke Prior School has a strong commitment to the added value of learning beyond the school day and beyond the school premises by the use of carefully planned Educational visits. This is part of the school’s required role to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepares young people for the opportunities and experiences of adult life.

We believe that:

Every young person should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development, whatever their age, ability or circumstances.  These, often the most memorable learning experiences, help us to make sense of the world around us by making links between feelings and learning. They stay with us into adulthood and affect our behaviour, lifestyle and work. They influence our values and the decisions we make. They allow us to transfer learning experienced outside to the classroom and vice versa.

Learning outside the classroom is about raising achievement through an approach to learning in which direct experience is of prime importance. This is not only about what we learn but importantly how and where we learn.

Each year the school will arrange a wide range of activities that take place off the school site and/or out of school hours.
