School trips with Stanley Grove

Pupils from Stanley Grove Primary Academy have enjoyed a number of fantastic school trips already this year. For example, Year 6 children were taken to the world-famous John Rylands Library on Deansgate, central Manchester, where they were given a tour of the Harry Potter-esque interiors and took part in a number of reading activities and debates. Year 5 pupils, meanwhile, took a trip back to Tudor times with a visit to Ordsall Hall in Salford. This fantastic old building is more than 750 years old and some of the oldest parts of the building were built as early as the 13th century. Visiting the house really brings history to life and the children enjoyed a great deal of activities, most popular of all being a huge wedding feast! We love to see the children from across our Trust enjoy trips like these, as they really support young people in their learning journey. Watch this space for more excursions news.
