Voted the most popular trip of the year by Year 4 boys from Papplewick School, this year’s visit to 'Rosie’s Chocolate Factory' at Sheeplands Farm in Berkshire did not disappoint.

The trip, on Thursday, 24th January, was part of the ‘Geography of Chocolate’ scheme of work for the Year 4 Geography course. The boys saw first-hand what goes into the production of chocolate, looked at the cacao bean and where it grows and studied the process of getting from 'bean to bar.'

The boys made a lollipop and solid bar from a choice of white, milk and dark chocolate.

Headmaster Tom Bunbury said:  “Nobody complains about the annual visit to Rosie’s Chocolate Factory!”

Papplewick is a day, weekly, and full boarding preparatory school for around 200 boys between the ages of 6 and 13. Situated in 15 acres of land opposite Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, Papplewick has an excellent record for academic achievement and feeds many of the UK’s top independent senior schools including Eton, Harrow, Winchester, Wellington, Stowe and Bradfield.  

In the last two years the school has maintained its academic record, gaining no less than 26 awards to top independent schools, including three King’s Scholarships to Eton. Through its strong commitment to sports, the school also builds skills of teamwork, sportsmanship and responsibility.

As well as academic, sporting and cultural excellence, Papplewick aims to provide boys with the confidence and security they need to fulfil their potential, and the school strives to promote enthusiasm for life, contribution to the community and kindness to others amongst all its pupils. 

A report by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in 2013 remarks that relationships between pupils and teachers: ‘are an outstanding strength of the school and are seminal in creating the strong sense of a mutually supportive and trusting community.’

Please note the entrance to Papplewick is on A332 which is different from SATNAV instructions.
