Beyond the classroom ...
At Merton Park we believe that some of the most exciting learning takes place outside the classroom, and we don’t need to go very far as there are many lovely open spaces close to our school.
A little further afield are Morden Park, the library and the Polka Theatre and our children participate regularly in sporting and cultural events hosted by other Merton schools.
We are lucky to be close to the centre of London, with its rich and varied resources, and all children (but particularly children from Yr 2 upwards) regularly visit the museums, art galleries and concert halls. Children travel on public transport up to London and this not only teaches them important life skills but keeps costs lower, as public transport is free for school children.
Trips that our children have made recently include:
Morden Hall Park - for river studies
The Natural History Museum
The Science Museum
The Magic Circle
Butser Ancient Farm
The Globe Theatre
The Houses of Parliament
