Bacup Holy Trinity Stacksteads C.E. Primary School

Welcome to the Holy Trinity Stacksteads C.E.P.S. Website


Each year in July the school take a party of up to 50 children from Y5 and Y6 to the  Education Away Centre at  Plas Nantglyn, near Denbigh, in North Wales. The visit lasts for 5 days / 4 nights.

The Education Away Blog has lots of photographs of our 2017 visit. You may need to scroll a little way through it as more recent visits by other schools will be the first you see on the blog.

During their stay the children visit Plas-y-Brenin National Mountain Centre for Wales and participate in pursuits such as canoeing, indoor rock climbing and a low ropes course. The children also visit Chester Zoo.


Various team-building and outdoor activities are undertaken in and around the grounds of the Education Away Centre. These include Wayfaring (junior orienteering), dam building in the stream, bridge building, shelter building, obstacle course, building a fire to cook waffles and country walks.
