Latest News & Events
Last week myself and Mr Hurn took 16 Year 9’s over to Cheddar for their Outdoor Ed Residential. On arrival we set up camp in some woodland, before preparing for an afternoon of activities. First up was an assault course which tested the students team work skills; followed by raft building which tested their resilience and patience. Both teams worked really hard to build their raft; unfortunately only one raft survived and most students ended up in the water by the end!
After an evening of playing manhunt and toasting marshmallows over the camp fire we spent our first night in the woods – some sleeping under the stars. Day 2 was even more action packed. In the morning we visited Sandstone Quarry for 3 hours of climbing and abseiling. Many students conquered their fear of heights by climbing to the top – or at least giving it a go. The grand finale took place in the afternoon; this time we were going underground caving. This was a first for all of the students and it will have been a challenge for many squeezing through holes which do not look large enough. However, ever single student took part and every single student achieved more than they thought possible. A wonderful 2 days with amazing students!
