Community education

Newbury Manor School actively encourages opportunities for our young people to learn outside of the classroom. We regularly organise activities and trips within and/or in conjunction with the local community for all year groups. All community-based learning has specific objectives associated with it that will support pupils’ learning and/or social development. The list below shares some examples of previous school events that our young people have taken part in and the ways in which they supported their learning.
