BVS Horizons

At Bure Valley School, we want our children to have as many experiences and opportunities as possible during their time with us. Therefore, we have created BVS Horizons.

Our Horizons experiences offer the children who attend our school the opportunity to take part in events that go beyond those offered by the National Curriculum.

Each year group aims to offer at least five experiences that encourage our children to look beyond their immediate world and begin to think about the wider world and what it can offer us.

Our current offer looks like this:
