Trips

Day trips to places of interest and residential trips abroad play an important part in the learning process at Blackheath High. They help to bring academic subjects to life outside of the classroom and give students the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in a real-life setting. Trips abroad also give students the chance to practise their language skills and learn more about other cultures.

At the Junior School trips are arranged for each year group with a particular aspect of the curriculum in mind.  A selection of trips and workshops are undertaken in each year group every half term. 
 
In the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, the trips are based around the Creative Curriculum. Some of the visits this year include:
Nursery The London Aquarium
Reception The National Gallery, the Museum of Childhood, High Elms Country Park and the Hop Farm
Year 1   Leeds Castle, London Zoo, High Elms Country Park
Year 2   The Thames Explorer Trust, the London Canal Museum, the London Fire Museum
 
In Key Stage 2:   
 
Year 3 The Old Royal Naval College, the National Maritime Museum, The Queen’s House, High Elms Country Park, Southwark Cathedral
Year 4 The Tower of London, the New West End Synagogue, London Zoo
Year 5    The Brunel Museum, the Wallace Collection
Year 6  The National Gallery, the Science Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum
            
As well as day trips, Girls in Year 5 and 6 enjoy residential trips in the UK and France respectively where they have a wonderful time engaged in physical challenge and learning to be the independent and considerate people that we would wish them to be. One of the highlights of the year for years 5 and 6 is the optional ski trip to Torgan, Switzerland, which is a joint venture with our senior school.
