Residential Visits

The children are given regular opportunities to go on educational visits to enhance their learning.  These can range from visits within the local community to trips further afield to museums and other places of interest.  A residential week to a PGL centre is offered to pupils in Year 5 and a residential trip to Rue in France is organised for Year 6. Comprehensive risk assessments are carried out before any visit is undertaken.

Pupils can derive much educational benefit from participating in school visits.  In particular, they have an opportunity to undergo experiences not available in the classroom.  As a school, we recognise that visits help to develop a pupil’s investigative skills and residential visits, in particular, encourage greater independence.


Located close to the coast on the beautiful Sussex Downs, Windmill Hill adventure centre is a popular choice with primary schools. There’s lots of adventure in the centre grounds for the children to discover - abseiling, canoeing, zip wire, raft building, giant swing to name a few. Accommodation is provided in comfortable wooden lodges – all with en suite facilities.

Le Château du Broutel dates back to 1714 and is situated in more than 40 acres of beautiful grounds. In addition to the main Château building, the estate comprises of extensive outbuildings, two large houses and a newly refurbished £1 million West Wing comprising of 30 en-suite bedrooms. In 2005 we invested over £500,000 into the Normandy Complex providing another 15 en-suite bedroom accommodation. A superb patio overlooks our private lake and the manicured lawns with 100-year-old chestnuts providing a spectacular back-drop.

Le Château du Broutel is situated on the edge of the small historical town of Rue. Originally established as a Roman outpost, it grew in prosperity in the 6th Century due to its port and later became the capital of the region.
