Ullswater Residential Year 8

Last updated: 04/04/2019

The annual Year 8 Residential, on the edge of Lake Ullswater offers our students a very full programme of activities, designed to provide physical, social and team building experiences.

St. Mary's students have been going to Ullswater for at least 20 years. Our older students often look back on the residential as one of their favourite memories.

Ullswater Prayer

This residential is full of beauty and adventure,
help me Lord to be fully alive to it all.
During this week, may we become more thoughtful people, more prayerful, generous and kind
When Friday comes, may we look back on the week with no regrets
Make it be a week in which we grow a little more like your Son, and gentle as Mary His Mother.

“Outdoor activity adventures start here and develops as St Mary’s offer more opportunities through the years continuing the John Muir model of caring for all environments everywhere!

Let the fun commence...”

The John Muir Award

The John Muir Award model is the common thread that runs though our Ullswater Residential, Duke of Edinburgh's Award and the World Challenge.

The John Muir Award "encourages people to connect with, enjoy, and care for wild places."

You can see a permanent display celebrating our school's 'Outward Bound' work in the stairwell near Room H33.
