Educational Trips & Visits

Residential Trips

As well as lots of fun and educational day trips, at Mercer's Wood Academy children have 2 opportunities to go on Residential Trips:

Year 4 - Rand Farm Park

Year 6 - PGL Caythorpe Court

We think it is lovely to give our children different life experiences and these trips offer that and so much more. Taking part in activities, learning valuable team building skills and seeing the teachers join in is just part of the fun!
All of our educational visits are overseen by Miss Phillips, our Educational Visits Co-ordination (EVC).

Further Information
We routinely arrange educational visits to local areas of interest, such as churches as well as travelling by coach to museums and other areas of interest which relate to children’s learning. We will always notify you if children are going on a visit and seek permission if we are going on a coach visit. We may sometimes ask for voluntary contributions to assist in the cost of such visits.

The Head of School and teachers reserve the right to refuse to take any child whom they judge to be a health and safety risk due to behavioural issues or will adversely affect the well-being and happiness of the group. It is the Trust’s intention to include all children on educational visits wherever practicable. However, children demonstrating persistent disruptive behaviour and violent or verbal abuse during the weeks prior to the visit may not be included. Parents and carers will always be notified if this is the case.
