School Trips

School trips used to be the highlight of the year for many children across the UK, partly because of how infrequently they happened. It was the novelty rather than the quality which made them special.

That’s not how we do things at New Bridge.

We build trips into our offer, making them meaningful and accessible for all.

Whether they are part of a Pathway offer, showing our young people the types of destination they can aim for, or if they’re a cultural learning opportunity, our staff teams facilitate high quality trips, all year round.

This week, I noticed New Bridge School’s trip to the Imperial War Museum.

Of course, the students got an awful lot from looking at the various artefacts and exploring the museum, but they also benefitted from practicing the life skills that they needed to get them there.

The opportunity to practice independence when using the tram is so important, and it’s a vital part of our MAT’s approach to school trips.

Elsewhere, some of the students at Spring Brook Upper went for a trip to the airport, and the montage film, created by Miss Crossley, gives a real insight into the different things they saw, heard and felt.  

These are just two examples of the trips our young people undertake, and a snap shot of the past week, but there are so many more happening all the time, all across the MAT and Group, as part of our collective offer.

Long may it continue and a big thank you to the staff who make these experiences possible.

Have a great weekend all.

We’re nearly there.
