The children at St. Teresa's Catholic Primary School enjoy going on educational visits over the school year.
- On a educational visit, students are more likely to retain information. Being immersed in information and being involved in visual and practical experiences will help children remember, learn and understand subjects.
- Educational visits will help reinforce classroom materials, bringing lessons to life. School trips give students the opportunity to visualise, experience and discuss information on a subject.
- Going on educational visits offers students a unique cultural learning experience. It allows students to be involved in new environments, key to encouraging curiosity about a given subject. It is also valuable as an exercise in broadening a student’s understanding of the world and their place in it.
- Educational trips encourage the development of social, personal and study skills. It has been observed that students appear to come out of their shell on educational visits, becoming creative and displaying leadership qualities.

- Valence House Museum;
