Woodbridge School's preparatory school - The Abbey

Prep School Trips

We believe that educational trips are extremely important for children of all ages. Day visits allow the children to become immersed in a topic, making learning relevant and exciting by inspiring imagination and creativity. Visits also enhance the children’s learning by allowing ideas to be developed back in the classroom. Here in Suffolk we have some amazing opportunities to visit local historic sites including; Sutton Hoo, Colchester castle, Orford castle and Hedingham castle. We also have some wonderful nature reserves including Carlton Marshes and, of course, our wonderful Suffolk coastline.

The Year 5 children have the opportunity to take part in a residential visit to York. This allows them the opportunity to practise many of our L@W skills including resilience, independence and collaboration. For many, this is the first time that they have been away from home and it is full of exciting and memorable activities that relate to our Science, Maths and History topics.

For the children in Year 6 we run an activity weekend at PGL. Pupils have the opportunity to enjoy activities such as archery, abseiling, raft building, climbing, orienteering and zip wiring.
