Our curriculum is enriched by educational visits. These allow the children to access specialist facilities, and provide opportunities for hands-on experiences above and beyond those possible at school.
Some of our visits are very local; to Holy Trinity Church, to the canal, Minchinhampton Common or to Inside Football. Generally we have a permission slip which allows us to take children on these local visits, although out of courtesy we will usually let you know beforehand.
Other visits may require coach transport or a longer walk. Recent class visits have included Westonbirt Arboretum, Bristol Museum, Kemble train station, Stroud's Museum in the Park and STEAM, in Swindon. We try to give you as much warning of these as possible and payment can be made via Parentpay. Our school administrator ensures that our trips are fully compliant with health and safety regualtions and also ensures best value for money. FOBS (Friends of Brimscombe School) often subsidise the cost of coaches, for which we are very grateful.
Additionally, the whole school visits the theatre as part of our Christmas celebrations each year, and we also run whole school trips as a reward for pupils collectively earning 5000 team points. Recently these have included a visit to the Cotswold Water Park, the cinema in Stroud and RUSH skatepark in the port at Brimscombe.
