We are absolutely delighted to be back running our Enrichment trips and residentials again and over the weekend 98 students from Years 9 and 10 travelled to PGL Winmarleigh Hall, Lancashire for the Back in Action residential on Friday.
The aim was to engage students in the new schools’ values of Being Kind, Working Hard and Taking Responsibility in a different environment with different mental and physical challenges. These involved raft building (the favourite activity), vertical climbing challenges, a giant swing, trapeze, assault course and other less intensive trials.
Everyone embraced the opportunities on offer and took part in most, if not all of the activities.
Feedback from the students has been extremely positive, the main point being that they got to work and be with friends where they have had limited socialisation due to lockdowns and self-isolation. Many said they would encourage others to take part in enrichment such as this in the future.
