Residentials are an opportunity for children to build character, and form their personal values. They remember these experiences for years to come. We have increased the number of residentials at Preston because we realise how important they are.
Residential experiences are provided for children in years 2, 4, and 6. These trips away from home offer great opportunities to develop self-esteem, confidence, independence, and, of course, new and exciting skills.
During the Summer Term our year 2 children are able to spend a night at school. Spending time in our Woodland Camp, learning fire lighting skills, toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate, leading to a night in the School Hall with their friends.
Year 4 pupils experience The Spirit of Adventure on the banks of the River Dart or on Dartmoor.
Year 6 pupils take the PGL challenge at Barton Hall near Torquay.
