At Hatfeild, the children in Years 4 and 6 have the opportunity to attend residential trips. Recently, Year 4 have been to Juniper Hall and Year 6 to Stubbington Study Centre.
Juniper Hall is a superb country house dating from the 17th century set in a peaceful wooded valley. It is situated in an unspoilt area of the chalk North Downs and at the edge of Box Hill, Surrey. Being in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, many amazing rivers, deciduous woodlands and grasslands can be found on the doorstep.
This residential encourages the children to get involved and engaged in the outdoors, taking part in hands-on, safe experiences.
The children enjoy wild adventures they will remember forever by:
- Increased interaction with nature, building confidence and resilience through activities and challenges
- Encouraging skills in communication and co-operation, with fun teambuilding games
Introducing measured risk taking to encourage independent thinking.
Stubbington Study Centre
Situated on the beautiful Hampshire coast, Stubbington Study Centre is an opportunity for our children to explore a variety of habitats for wildlife, investigate the nearby beach and develop team-building skills through play.
Stubbington offer our children the chance for a pre-visit to calm the nerves of those who are feeling worried about staying away from home. They have the opportunity to go along to the centre and have a look around with their family and friends. The children can have a look in the bedrooms, enjoy a Stubby biscuit in the dining room and explore the grounds.
Our current Year 6 had a fantastic 5 days at Stubbington, observing Badgers at night time, taking part in adventure trails, developing their teamwork through activities like sandcastle competitions and making creature hotels to explore the local wildlife.
