Residential Visits

We run two residential visits at Hill View School. Letters are sent out in January for children to enrol for trips.

In Year 4 the children visit Hooke Court in Dorset, a residential centre that caters for a wide range of educational and physical activities. During the visit the children participate in:

  • Low Ropes Challenge Course
  • Orienteering
  • Night line
  • A Murder Mystery
  • Tribal Kingdom Day
  • Wide Games
  • Rocket building

All the activities are designed to encourage both teamwork and work on independence skills. The centre is located in a beautiful setting deep in the heart of Dorset. All meals are home cooked and follow our own healthy eating philosophy.

In year 6 the children take part in a visit to Dartmoor in Devon. The children stay on a farm where they get the opportunity to care and look after many of the animals including rabbits, chickens and a barn owl!!

Over the four days the children experience the following:

  • A visit to the Eden Project
  • A day at Tree Surfers
  • Singing around a campfire
  • A Y6 talent show
  • Many different farm jobs and responsibilities

This visit is a great opportunity for the children to begin to celebrate their last year together at the school.
