Extending learning beyond the classroom and out into the local and wider environment has always been an integral part of school life at Oakley. Every year all classes have a variety of trips related to education in its broadest sense, often covering areas that cannot be covered in a classroom. Visits include theatre trips to see plays and concerts, local museums and trips to study the geography and environment of different parts of the island.
The experience of staying away from home on an overnight camping trip develops a child in many areas and is also tremendous fun!
