During the children’s time at Upton House they will get fantastic opportunities to involve themselves in diverse cultural and educational trips linked to the curriculum.

These experiences enrich their learning whilst increasing their exposure to life beyond school. This includes a focus on learning outside the classroom (LOtC), within the school grounds, through all areas of the curriculum

Once the children reach Prep, residential trips take place that help to encourage the children’s independence.

As the children progress through the school their residential stay increases each year culminating in a week long trip to France in Year 6.
