Abbotsholme believes that what happens outside the classroom is just as important as what happens inside the classroom.
Our Prep pupils from Reception upwards have the ability to access a wide variety of opportunities throughout the school.
Our Outdoor Education programme is designed to keep our youngsters fit, sharp and healthy. Weekly timetabled lessons in the outdoors - perhaps on the farm, or riding a horse, or in the hills, on lakes or rivers, or even down pot-holes - are all part of this happy childhood.
The annual hikes in the autumn and the camps in the summer give all the pupils the chance to sleep in youth hostels or under canvas. These are experiences from which tired pupils return to their anxious parents who are equally tired from missing a couple of nights’ sleep. Of course parents worry, but there is no need. Their children may be muddy and tired but they are also extremely happy and safe, which is all that matters.
