Hook-with-Warsash C of E Academy is committed to offering a wide range of educational activities and trips that enable pupils to develop self-confidence, personal organisation, teamwork, responsibility, leadership and environmental awareness.
Day trips are planned in each year group and are carefully chosen to complement the children’s studies in the classroom. Residential trips are offered in years 4, 5 and 6 to allow opportunities for children to develop independence and resilience away from home whilst offering team- building activities through a variety of unique and fun experiences.
The experiences we offer at Hook-with-Warsash are aimed at enhancing the quality of learning through ‘real’ situations both inside and outside the classroom. These activities range from finding mathematical patterns in the school grounds, or exploring pond life in the environmental area, to kayaking down rivers in Dorset and visiting significant historical sites. Such learning can help children build bridges between theory and reality, schools and communities, young people and their futures.
