During their time at Swanbourne, we like to take the children on residential visits. These start in Year 3 and have visited such areas such as Cornwall, Norfolk and Staffordshire escalating in nights away from two nights to four, depending on the Year Group. This has proved to be a very beneficial experience for all the children, with the emphasis on team building and outdoor activities. The time spent away from home depends on the age group and full written information is provided a long way in advance of the event. All educational visits are recorded with county and full risk assessments completed.

Details of the different residential trips are below:

Year 3 - In the summer term Year 3 undertake a one day outdoor adventure experience which has in recent years been held at the Caldecotte "Xperience" in Milton Keynes, including activities such as climbing wall, high ropes course and water sport team building activities, such as raft making or sailing.

Year 4 - In the Summer term Year 4 are offered a two night residential, Woodrow High House in Amersham including a range of outdoor activities and educational experiences.

Year 6 - Year 6 is a busy year for the children with the 11+ in September and SATs in May, so in the summer term they are offered a four night residential to Devon to participate in a range of outside experiences including surfing, coasteering, body boarding, archery, beach games and coastal walking.

More details of each residential follow at the beginning of the academic year in order for parents to plan ahead and begin a payment plan if required.
