Beyond the Classroom
We believe that education should extend beyond the classroom.
School Trips & Events
To bring the cross-curricular topics to life we begin each theme with a WOW moment. This may be a trip to the British Museum for the Year 4 Romans unit, or a classroom take over to introduce the Year 5 invaders unit. We believe that the children benefit from visiting the many places of interest London has to offer, and from having representatives from various organisations and other specialists visit the school. We also ensure children have access to experiences which will help them build their self-confidence and widen their life experiences. These include the year 5 and 6 residential trips and opportunities to experience arts events such as the Year 2 pantomime trip.
After School Clubs
Playcentre provision is available for West Hampstead pupils at the Fortune Green playcentre. The children are collected from the school by the Fortune Green staff at 3:30.
Children are also able to take part in a range of after school clubs from 3:30pm to 4:30pm (see WHPS Clubs document below).
From 8:00 am there is a breakfast club available at West Hampstead school at a cost of £2.00 per day. Activities and sport are provided alongside a healthy breakfast meal.
