Westbourne Awards are an exciting combination of fun adventure and a significant challenge, encouraging personal development and new skills.
Outdoor education trips are an important part of school life. Our Westbourne Awards are a sequence of expeditions that start small and grow as the children grow.As well as being great fun, the trips give the children the change to explore their strengths, to find new ways of working together and see the power of fantastic teamwork.
Westbourne Award Introduction: In Year 3, the children experience a team-building day in the school grounds. They use a variety of skills including listening, cooperating, working together, patience, trust and problem solving.
Blue Westbourne Award: As they move into Year 4, the children go to the New Forest on their first residential of three days. For the kids, it feels like jam-packed fun; however,
as well as visiting the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu and go-karting, they work on activities that test their logic and ability to improvise.
Bronze Westbourne Award: Our Year 5s visit Westwood Scout Camp near Bristol and Chepstow. The camp has a wonderful and state-of-the-art high ropes circuit and the qualified instructors provide a safe, yet extremely challenging climbing experience.
Silver Westbourne Award: Year 6 paddle the River Wye and camp out under the stars.
Gold Westbourne Award: Year 8’s teamwork is put to the test during five days in Dartmoor. Each day consists of a least two activities and the variety is amazing, from running and climbing one day to kayaking and caving the next.
