We place great importance on enriching our children’s education and learning experience. We do this through a broad range of activities, inviting visitors into school and ensuring that they all take part in a full range of day trips as well as a week-long residential for children in Year 5 or 6.
- London Aquarium and Zoo
- A rich diversity of London’s museums: eg the Natural History Museum, Maritime Museum and the Science Museum
- Experiences like canal boat trips and the London Eye
In addition, every year we put on a Christmas production based on a pantomime selected by our children. Prior to the performance, workshops are held on prop making, face painting, drama and costume making.
Frank Barnes has achieved Healthy School status and strongly advocates children having a healthy lifestyle, being active and learning to be as independent as possible.
We have weekly lunchtime bike and running clubs as part of our PE and Sport Development encouraging more physical activities throughout the school term. Some children take part in a weekly scooter club at lunchtimes to support their balance and coordination skills.
We also have a News Club where a group of children work together to write and publish the school newspaper called Fantastic Frank News!
Additionally, we now have a weekly BSL Sign Signing Choir club with Kings Cross Academy pupils! Check out the video of FBS and KCA pupils sign signing "Let it Snow" and "Silent Night" for the Christmas season.
