Grendon CE Primary School recently won the 'My Best School Trip' category at the national School Travel Awards 2022.
The Main Road school won the award for its week-long residential to YHA Perranporth – a trip that enriched their curriculum and developed vital skills to help pupils to succeed.
Headteacher John Wayland said the children’s return to face-to-face education following the pandemic presented a “unique opportunity" for the school to demonstrate the true value of a school trip.
He said: “Despite the obstacles presented by the global pandemic, the school community worked alongside the Youth Hostel Association to deliver a safe, exciting and memorable trip."
As part of their prize the school was awarded £1,500 to be spent on future trips.
The school has chosen to reward all of its pupils by planning a whole-school summer visit to Wicksteed Park in July.
