At Holy Trinity C of E Primary School we want to inspire and engage our children through an enriched curriculum. Teachers plan for opportunities throughout the year to provide first-hand experiences and allow children to have a ‘hands-on’ experience.
All classes take part in off-site visits linked to their learning, from local village studies to coach trips further afield. All visits are risk assessed and the pupil to adult supervision ratio is always in line with Surrey recommendation. Some of the recent visits have been:
EYFS: RHS Wisley Gardens and Windsor Castle
Year 1: Marwell Zoo and Milestones Museum
Year 2: Hobbledown Farm and Kew Gardens
Year 3: Woolley Firs Farm and Buster Ancient Farm
Year 4: Blue Reef Aquarium and Ufton Court
Year 5: Hampton Court Palace and Chessington World of Adventures
Year 6: Brentmoor Heath, Planetarium Roadshow and Guildford Cathedral
Years 5 and 6 pupils are also offered the opportunity for extended visits. Year 5 camp for 2 nights locally and Year 6 stay in a Youth Hostel in Shropshire for 3 nights. Such experiences offer a diverse range of activities and the opportunity for the class to work together as a team.
Visitors to school also play a big part in bringing learning alive such as: local museums with artefacts, theatre groups, an astronomy dome, local vicar, police and other emergency services. The school also benefits from a variety of visiting musicians throughout the year.
EYFS: Emergency Services
Year 1: Toys from the past
Year 2: Birdworld and Surrey Wildlife Trust
Year 3: Chertsey Museum with Greek artefacts
Year 4: African Drumming workshop

People are our greatest resource and we welcome the assistance and expertise from parents, grandparents and other adults. Hearing children read, working with small groups, accompanying visits or working in our resource areas are examples of the help we are very grateful to receive. Local secondary schools also regularly support our curriculum particularly in provision for the gifted and talented.
