Year 7 Residential to Gilwell Park

News ‐ 30 Sep 2019

Nearly 200 staff and students went off on our annual Year 7 trip to Gilwell Park activity centre at the start of this academic year.

The purpose of the trip was to enable students and staff to get to know each other outside of the academy, to try new things and step outside of their comfort zone. For some students it was the first time they had stayed away from home. Students did archery, climbing, team building activities and even camping and cooking on a camp fire. Despite the rain, fears were conquered, new friends were made and everyone had a great time embodying the spirit of Participation and Perseverance!
