Primary school programmes
We have many Primary school programmes that are designed to help meet the requirements of the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and 2.
I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for such a fantastic trip that we enjoyed to the Lee valley centre at the end of the summer term.
The year 4 group from Tetherdown Primary School learnt all about the Stone Age period. Our group was led by Simon. He was exceptional, engaged the children in all of the activities and really brought the learning to life. They did a treasure hunt for relevant plants, learnt to light fire and did cave drawings, amongst other activities.
Many of us parents have accompanied the children on numerous school trips and we all agreed that this was one of the best.
Many thanks . Oonagh Roy, Parent of Year 4 child/ Tetherdown Primary School

“I just wanted to say a very big thank you to everyone involved with Sybourn School Trip that took place yesterday.
The children had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the whole session. As teachers and parents,
we were very impressed with the content and learning experiences you provided for the children.
Every time I spoke to someone from Youth and Schools, they were very friendly and willing to go above and beyond, so thank you once again.
I will definately be recommending you to other work colleagues and teacher friends.
