The children of Prep are given the opportunity to participate in two residential trips whilst at Blue Coat. The first happens early in Year 6 and is an outward bound experience. Recent trips have taken place on the Jurassic Coast, Aberdovey and Ullswater and this year they visit Colomendy in Denbighshire. Later in Year 6 the children and staff head off to northern France for a cultural and fun-filled week where they are given every opportunity to practise their language skills.

Parents are kept fully up to date with the daily activities of the children through the trip websites. These are full of beautiful photographs and daily blog entries.
