Experiences - Trips & Visits

At Park Hill Junior School we believe that as well as learning knowledge and applying skills, it is also important for children to have experiences which link to the themes they are learning. As a school we book trips (making them free of charge whenever possible) to help the children to consolidate their learning, make things come to life and enable the children to retain information that they are learning.

The list below shows some of the school trips we offer plus a list of suggestions of museums and events in the London or local area which you may want to visit as a family. If you have visited anywhere and have any suggestions please don’t hesitate to let us know so we can add it to the list.
