Educational Visits and School Journeys

wp8e828624_05_06[1]

St Elizabeth’s is situated in a particularly interesting and beautiful part of London. We believe that educational visits are an integral part of the curriculum, and the school takes full advantage of the many places of interest in the local area that support and compliment classroom learning.  

St Elizabeth’s is fortunate to be located next to Richmond Park and we make full use of this wonderful resource for our weekly cross country running club and other sports events and for seasonal Science and nature walks.  Classes also visit Holly Lodge, the park’s education centre for geographical and historical studies.

Within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, we are within easy reach of Kew Gardens, The British Legion Poppy Factory, Hampton Court, the National Archives at Kew and the Thames Riverside, all of which regularly form part of our studies.

The school also arranges educational visits to attractions in London such as the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, the National Gallery, and the Imperial War Museum to name a few.

Each year all children have a focused study on another faith and classes in Key Stage 2 visit the Kingston Mosque, the Richmond Synagogue, the Shri Sanatan Hindu Mandir, Wembley and the Sikh Gurdwara, Southall.

The school also regularly invites speakers into school to deliver interactive workshops and performances to enhance learning of key topics.  

In order for such educational visits to take place, the school may at times request voluntary contributions towards the cost of a particular visit.

School Journeys

St Elizabeth’s strongly believes that school journeys are of great educational value and foster a spirit of independence in the children. Each year the school organises residential school journeys to France for Year 6, Isle of Wight for Year 5 and Sayers Croft in Ewhurst, Surrey for Year 4.
