Residential Visits

At Delta Pheasant Bank, we value the skills, experience and resilience that pupils develop through having the opportunity to take part in school visits. It also enables them to embed and further develop their passion and understanding of our curriculum. Our visits have been chosen to provide a variety of inspirational experiences to our students and develop their confidence in a range of situations. Children at our academy are invited to go on a residential visit every year. These enable children to develop their independence, knowledge, skills and gain a wider range of experiences that link to our learning in school.

The following residential are planned for 2023/24 academic year:
