Pinewood Adventure builds on our ethos of Learning Outside the Classroom and brings together education, recreation and fun.
The Pinewood Adventure programme is aimed at both the group and the individual. On a group level, it involves co-operation, tolerance, team building, listening and leading. For the individual, it engenders character, independence of spirit, resourcefulness, determination, resilience, self-reliance and self-discovery.
The Pinewood Adventure weekend is scheduled for the end of April. Year 4 children visit Mill on the Brue in Somerset, Year 5 spend the weekend sailing in Chichester Harbour, Year 6 have a bushcraft experience, Year 7 children visit a French Chateau and in Year 8 there are two trips, first a combined humanities trip to London in the Autumn Term, and then an adventure trip to Wales after their exams in the Summer Term. As an introduction to the Pinewood Adventure programme, Year 3 experience a day outside in our own glorious 84 acres of woodland and outdoor classroom. We also organise a biennial school ski trip.
