At Eaton House The Manor our co-curricular programme offers a diverse range of activities and a wealth of opportunities for boys that go far beyond the classroom.
School trips and workshops are a valuable element of the boys' education. They cover a wide range of activities, often linking in with topics studied in the classroom. They include educational visits to museums and galleries, outings to farms and parks, field trips and adventure breaks to activity centres, and visits abroad. They stimulate development, encourage pupils to be resourceful and self-reliant and to use their initiative, and teach pupils about developing relationships with others. At Eaton House The Manor we plan a number of trips for every year group that combine fun and learning activities.
Being outdoors and giving the children the opportunity to experience new things is essential for their development. We encourage the boys to gain independence, develop resilience, collaborate with others and have the confidence to take risks by taking them on both day and residential trips. Residential trips start in Year 3 with boys having the opportunity to take part in a three-day residential trip to Norfolk along with the Year 3 girls from the Girls' School. This trip is often the first time the children have spent time away from their family so the focus is on ensuring the children feel happy and secure and have fun exploring a new environment with their friends and staff who know them well.
