The Bridgeview residential visit to Robin Hood’s Bay is a highlight of the school calendar every year, and is something that causes a buzz around school far beyond the week of the actual visit. For our Year 6s (some of whom have been with us since Year 2) it is the chance to make memories that last long after they have left us for secondary school, and form strong bonds with their classmates who they get to see in a completely different light.
While on the visit the children will be exposed to the beautiful coastal town of Robin Hood’s Bay, where rich science and geography experiences leap out of every clifftop hike and fossil hunt. Back at the Old School House dorms they become a close knit team and learn the skills of sharing living space with others, consideration and collaboration. If we’re lucky they’ll even come home with the same socks they brought!
