The Class 4 residential runs every two years. In recent years, the children have visited Hilltop, an outdoor, residential centre running a tailor-made week of activities and challenges for the children. The week is a highlight of children’s time in Class 4 where they create special memories with their friends. Children are given the opportunity to develop their independence during this time away from home and shine and succeed in many different areas. Parents are invited to an evening meeting where the outline of the week is explained and any questions are answered. Kit lists are given out as well as medical and dietary forms. Payment for the residential is organised through the school office. Payments can be made in one lump sum or over an agreed number of instalments.
