We believe that education is much more than class based learning. Children can draw upon a range of experiences outside of the school and we believe so strongly in this that we provide the following experiences for free or heavily subsidised.

Ford Castle is a medieval castle set in the rolling countryside of Northumberland, with exciting activities hidden within the grounds. We provide group activity holidays for children who will adventure and explore their way into outdoor education as they enjoy activity sessions in a supportive environment with stunning scenery, where history comes to life

This trip has been run annually for the last two years. Click here to find out more.

High Borrans is an outdoor education centre set amidst some of the Lake District's most spectacular scenery, 3 miles from Windermere. With the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks on its doorstep there is a huge variety of activities and outdoor experiences, from canoeing on its own tarn or on the larger lakes, to ghyll scrambling and caving.

This trip has been run annually for the last four years. Click here to find out more.

Château Beaumont provides gate-to-gate school trips to France at our own centre on the Normandy / Loire Valley border. Children get the experience of speaking French and taking part in a number of activities.

This trip will be run for the first time in 2015. Click here to find out more.

Every Friday one child from every class is rewarded for excellent achievement. They are then invited to go on a trip in one of our mini buses to a range of places across the North East. The trip usually takes place on a Tuesday afternoon and has included visits to the Penshaw Monument, Ten Pin Bowling, Saltwell Park, Durham Cathedral and many more interesting places.

To promote good attendance we reward classes that attend highly each week. Some of these visits have been to the cinema, Beamish Living Museum and Alnwick Gardens.
