Trips and Visits

Colston’s attaches great importance to children participating in school trips and visits. A large number of excellent trips and outings are organised throughout the year, including an overnight visit for Year 2 children and residential trips for the Juniors.

These are considered to make an important contribution to the curriculum and children are therefore expected to take part. There is an extra charge for these trips but the cost is kept to a minimum.

Trips of a recreational nature, such as the ski trip, usually take place during holidays and at weekends, and for these, attendance is voluntary.

Examples of recent school trips and visits through the year are as follows:

  • Westonbirt Arboretum
  • Victorian School at Sevington
  • Cadbury Camp Hill Fort
  • Big Pit Coal Mine
  • Glenny Woods Field Centre
  • M-Shed at Bristol Docks
  • Bristol Harbourside
  • Warner Bros. Studios (Harry Potter)
