Enriching Cultural Capital

At Hague we value, ‘experiential learning’ which promotes learning from first hand, practical experiences.

We believe this supports the learning of all children and is complimented through off-site educational visits, handling artefacts and inviting ‘specialists’ in to school.

We have devised a list of experiences that we strive to provide for all our children. We believe that these experiences develop children's confidence, their knowledge of the wider world and raise their aspirations for the future.
