Read the full report from Mr McClune.

Year 9 were lucky enough to take advantage of a rare sunny Adventure Week in Swanage. It was all smiles as students got to experience half a week of Duke of Edinburgh and the other half completing adventurous activities.

Students had the opportunity to explore the coastal paths of Dorset for two and a half days with our external providers. During this time, they completed their various survival training before undertaking their Duke of Edinburgh Practise expedition. All the students are in a position to carry out and enrol in the Bronze Expedition after many students are now experts in making Pot Noodles!

The highlight for many was the abundance of water sports down on the Jurassic Coast which seen students have the opportunity to bravely tackle rocks and jumps in the sea. The pull of the water couldn’t stop Miss McKay-Pryce from trying a spot of mackerel fishing; however, Miss Margaroli landed the largest catch! In addition to this, many students relished the opportunity to seek revenge on Mr Hoffman and Mr McClune in the waterpark, fun was had by all in great spirit! The students were a credit to the College in their conduct throughout the week, and we were proud to their approach letting-off steam after their internal exam’s week.
