Enhancing our curriculum


We (normally!) aim to provide children with varied, exciting and “hands-on” learning experiences and, as part of this, we are pleased to offer a range of visits, visitors and school based activities throughout the year; including our popular ‘Mix-up Mornings!’ We are particularly proud of our cooking programme and opportunities for children to look after the garden and grounds.  In addition to curriculum trips to places such as Wisley, Butser Ancient Farm, the Watercress Line and Ufton Court, children in Year 4 and 6 have the opportunity to participate in residential trips to Swanage and Manor Adventure in Shropshire.

In order to make these trips and other enrichment activities possible, parents may be asked to make voluntary contributions towards these. Our Charging and Remissions Policy Heatherside Junior School Charging and Remissions Policy 2019 to 2020 includes information on trips being cancelled should insufficient voluntary contributions be received.
