At Athelstan we actively promote learning outside the classroom opportunities to all our children including adventurous activities such as climbing, caving and educational visits. We believe these experiences play a positive part in enhancing the children’s education as well as helping with their personal and social development.

Some of the key experiences for any child, not just at Athelstan, are residential visits. At Athelstan, the Year 6 residential to Kingswood at Colomendy in Wales is a significant milestone in the childrens' educational journey. Every September, Year 6 are given the opportunity to visit the Kingswood centre in North Wales for five days of action packed adventure. The children are kept busy from early morning until late in the evening taking part in activities such as climbing, caving, abseiling, quad biking, archery and zip wire.

The children have a brilliant time experiencing extra-curricular activities in a safe environment.
