Trips

Mount Kelly Prep organises a range of exciting trips to enhance and complement the broad range of subjects and interests taught at the school. The pupils also spend a lot of time on Dartmoor as well as visits to historic Bath, nearby Buckland Abbey (home of Sir Frances Drake), Torridge '1646' (site of the last major battle of the English Civil War) and the vibrant and culturally rich cities of Plymouth and Exeter.

These trips are accompanied by theme days in school such as the very popular Victorian Day when the children (and staff) dress up and learn what it was like to be a school child in the Victorian era, World Book Day and various charity events.

Outings are also frequently arranged to other educational institutions for competitions and learning days such as the Salters’ Faraday Challenge at Plymouth University, the annual drama workshop at Queens College, and music excursions (e.g. Sherborne Abbey Choir Day, IAPS Folk Workshops at Exeter Cathedral).
