We believe that learning takes place indoors and out, throughout the day and in many different places.
Trips, residentials, work with partners and opportunities before and after school are all experiences that make Hermitage an exciting, challenging and fun place to learn.
We believe that residentials offer our children the space to develop some of our core values of independence, resilience, cooperation, tolerance and supportiveness.
We visit the Hardelot centre, near Boulogne, in France, to practice our French, sample French culture and food, negotiate passport control and stay abroad without our families!
In Year 6, we have a week long residential at Gorsefield, near Stansted Mountfitchet. This residential concentrates on building teamwork and leadership skills, as well as developing skills in cycling, archery, orienteering, woodcraft , shelter building. There is a lot of fun and friendship too! Then they are joined by the Year 5 children for a day visit.
