Residential visits

At Nether Alderley Primary School, pupils in KS2 are offered the exciting opportunity to attend residentials with their peers. This allows the pupils to recognise the benefits of being taken away from their comfort zones and help to develop their personal growth and independence by spending a night, or two nights away from home.

Our residential visits are extremely popular with pupils.

Class 3 residential:

Every two-years, children are offered the opportunity to attend a one-night residential at Tattenhall.
