Ullswater Residential Year 8 2016

This week our students are enjoying activities designed to provide physical, social and team building experiences

Ullswater Residential 2016

176 pupils from Year 8 enjoyed a fantastic week at Outward Bound in the Lake District. The pupils engaged in an array of activities such as gorge scrambling, orienteering, rafting, tunnelling, rowing and abseiling. All pupils took part in the trademark 'Jog and Dip' and many took on challenging hikes, sleeping under canvas on the mountainside and waking up in the snow.

The students helped to repair the damage caused by the recent floods and they really started to understand how they could make a practical difference to the environment. The pupils engaged with the process and the adventurous challenges they faced - and as a result were a credit to themselves, the school and their families.
