Residential Visits

Residential trips are an important extension to school life and work. All year 2, year 4 and year 6 children are offered the opportunity to take part in a residential outdoor education visit to one of Cheshire West's accredited centre. These trips focus on the personal and social growth of the children, as well as offering them unique learning experiences.

During these trips we try to encourage greater independence, self-confidence and self-reliance through a range of activities such as: rock climbing, den building, country walks, exploring, team building, ropes courses, abseiling, etc. These residential trips are an opportunity for the children to learn in a different way, in a different environment and also an opportunity to get to know each other and the staff away from school. These visits are also always a great deal of fun!

For the past 9 years, through 2 children, I have always felt NPS goes the extra mile to support it's students in all areas of the curriculum. The staff are fantastic, hard-working and very approachable. It is a great school and I am glad we chose it all those years ago.
Parent
This school has always been a positive influence on my children (2 of which didn't want to leave!) I have recommended this school to several people in the past and will continue to do so in the future. High praise for all the teachers and assistants who make the school what it is!
Parent
Great team of staff at NPS. Ladies at reception are so helpful. Newsletter and Facebook page are very informative and helpful. Breakfast club - excellent - my child raves about it. Love the Friday celebration assembly. The sense of pride and encouragement felt is overwhelming - a wonderful celebration of the children.
Parent
Thanks for the beautiful memories, good times and great learning experiences for Adam, Faith and Rose! Truly has been a life time adventure for the kids...one that will last a lifetime of memories! Hope to visit Neston again in the future!
