S. Anselm’s is planning a jam-packed schedule of activities over the next few months, much to the excitement of its’ pupils who, like school children throughout the UK, are more than ready to embrace school trips and activities full of fun, adventure and discovery once more! The school, recently crowned Tatler ‘Prep School of the Year’, has planned an exhilarating array of trips to include a Jersey music tour, a ski trip to Austria, a visit to the Imperial War Museum and group trips to the Nottingham Velodrome. Residentials have been planned for exciting new destinations for Year 7 at Castle Howard’s bushcraft camp in Yorkshire; and for Year 8 the Snowdonia Adventure Park.

Looking further ahead into Autumn, a particular highlight of the year will be a Camino experience for Years 7 and 8. This will be a parent and child challenge, consisting of 3 days’ walking along the famous pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela in Spain’s Galicia region, with time then to enjoy the city, in the first week of the October half term.

All this will be sprinkled with events including a Crufts style S. Anselm’s Pet Show, two ambitious drama productions, a Shakespeare monologue competition, a chess championship and several social dates for parents, including a clay shoot, a Summer social and a Winter ball.

Mr Thompson, Head at S. Anselm’s said,

“The past couple of years have been challenging for many children in the UK and many schools have had to face the disappointment of delayed and cancelled plans. At S. Anselm’s we wanted to put a schedule together to ensure pupils once more have a lot to embrace and look forward to. Our broad plan of activities includes much more than the whistle stop tour listed above, and we are very much looking forward to the remainder of 2022 and beyond.”
