    Year six residential school trip

    Year 6 primary school residential trip

    For Year 6 students a longer school residential trip is ideal.  Create a bespoke residential trip to develop independence, team-working and resilience. It’s perfect at any time of year.

    Our Year 6 residential trips offer something different from most adventure companies. Rather than rushing children from activity to activity, we know they need time to enjoy their experience. Our year 6 students go home talking of singing around the campfire, enjoying nature and bonding with their classmates.

    Our award-winning school trips provide you with time spent in nature away from screens and technology. It’s a chance to bond and work together. Being outdoors is a great boost for their mental and physical health.

    “A fabulously engaging and inspiring visit for our children who would not get to experience these activities elsewhere.” Kings Oak Primary School

    dehavilland school logoDe Havilland wanted a camping experience but needed it to feel comfortable and secure. Teacher Helen Hayhoe explained, “It was a relaxed, lovely experience. So many of our children had never been away from home before. Wildchild gave them freedom to explore and have fun but it felt very safe. It was good preparation for secondary school.”
