Our School Trips

At St. Joseph's we offer a variety of educational trips to all the children. Below are some of our most recent trips.


Trip to the mosque and park

Reception and year 1 visited a local mosque and then visited Ballgrove park.  The children really enjoyed finding out more about the mosque and how people worship there.

British Commercial Vehicle Museum

Class 1 visited the British Commercial Museum in Leyland . We had a lovely time looking at and talking about all the different types of vehicles; horse drawn buses; old fire trucks; double decker buses and even the Popemobile from John Paul II's 1984 UK visit!

Blackpool Zoo

Classes 1, 2 and 3 had a wonderful day on their trip to Blackpool Zoo.

Outdoor Elements

Children in Class 4 and 5 visited the Outdoor Elements centre. They took part in a variety of activities including: fire making and making campfire bread; archery; shelter making; climbing Jacob's Ladder and taking the 'Leap of Faith'. Everyone had a fantastic time and challenged themselves to try things they had never attempted before.
