Enhancing the Curriculum
At Highweek Primary School we bring learning to life through a host of visits and visitors. In the past year we have welcomed artists and art historians into school, to name but a few.
Themed days are also a wonderful way to enhance learning and recently Highweek Primary pupils have relished opportunities to experience a day as a viking and as medieval kings, queens and jesters too.
Each year the Year 5 children take part in an activity-based residential visit and gain a great deal from the experience.
At Highweek Primary School we run a wide range of extra curricular clubs to give the children opportunities to participate in activities that they may not normally get to try or to enhance their skills in activities that they already enjoy.
