Off We Go…

At Cove, we feel the opportunities that residential visits offer are invaluable to a child’s development. The chance to be away from home, to make decisions for themselves, to take controlled risks, to support and to be supported by peers, are just a few of the many reasons that we value residential visits. 

We currently offer 2 residential visits for our pupils.

Our Year 4 pupils go to Calshot. This trip will includes activities such as wind surfing, skiing, rifle shooting, rock climbing and sailing. During these sessions the pupils will push themselves to new limits, and succeeding in ways they never imagined. This trip is usually runs over a weekend early in the summer term.

Our Year 6 pupils face a very different challenge. This year they will be travelling to Wales, to Hampshire's mountain centre. The focus for this trip is, 'If I can do that, I can do anything'. During the trip, the pupils will go caving, climb a mountain, canoe a river and climb a gauge. However, this is not the end of the challenges... they will need to make their own breakfast and packed lunch; and working with their group... they will need to prepare an evening meal for all 46 people.
