Residential Journeys

Our Residential Journeys




We are currently following government guidelines for residential visits this year due to the coronavirus. Historically children at Ley Hill School have been fortunate enough to visit PGL at Osmington Bay and travel to France for residential journeys.


PGL Osmington Bay

In Year 5 the children have the opportunity to go further afield when we go to PGL Osmington Bay in Dorset. Here they engage in a whole week’s program of outdoor adventure education where individual confidence is nurtured and team work is essential. The activities include abseiling, rock climbing, archery, zip wiring, giant swing, quad biking, hiking/orienteering, problem solving and much more.


France (Cherbourg Peninsula)
Year 6 travel to France in the Summer term of their final year at Ley Hill. This trip provides the children with experiences to support their understanding of the Second World War as we visit the Normandy beaches and war cemeteries. They also have lots of opportunity to put their French, which they learn from Year 3, into practice as they shop, buy tickets and order in cafes.


The school will ask for a voluntary contribution from families for trips, residential visits and special school events. These charges, which are varied, are kept to a minimum possible amount. The school reserves the right however to cancel trips if insufficient funds are contributed.


We strive to ensure that trips are directly linked to studies in our curriculum and add value to the pupils’ learning experience.
