Pre-Prep Life

Life Outside the Classroom

The children go on many engaging educational trips during the year and welcome to Twyford visiting groups who captivatingly bring themes and topics to life.

The list of trips is extensive and diverse, ranging from Reception visiting the local Pizza Express to make pizzas, performances at the local theatres (Winchester’s Theatre Royal, Southampton’s Mayflower), Marwell Zoo, Hillier Gardens, Royal Victoria Country Park, the Meon Valley Outdoor Sustainability Centre, Marwell Activity Centre, Southampton Art Gallery.  The highlight for many in the Summer is ‘Beach Week’, when each year group visits Avon Beach, Mudeford for the day to explore the seashore, go crabbing and build their water confidence and safety awareness.

We also invite to Twyford many visiting speakers and theatre groups who bring subjects to life – from The Gunpowder Plot, Florence Nightingale (you have never seen so many bandages!), Sir Teachalot (with his ride on horse jousting game), Lion Dancers to celebrate Chinese New Year, Perform Theatre Group with a variety of activities, Treehouse Theatre Group and notable visiting authors and illustrators for World Book Week.
