Year 8 Graduation Outward Bound Residential - Friday 6 July to Sunday 8 July

We had a fantastic Outward Bound Graduation Residential for Year 8 this weekend, at Dukeswood House in Hexham. Friday 6 July to Sunday 8 July 2018. Students have worked hard throughout the year, following the ‘Road to Graduation’ to prove they are ready to start their GCSEs in September as they start Year 9. Unlike last year, which was a wet and rainy start, we’ve had glorious sunshine and a pretty impressive England game too…

Lots of challenging, and occasionally terrifying activities – superb to see confidence growing, support of each other, and beaming smiles replacing some distinctly pale faces beforehand! Well done everyone! Students have been abseiling, tackling the 3D Swing, playing aeroball on trampolines, competing on assault courses, building shelters, learning camp craft skills such as camp fire building, team challenges and problem solving, Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork!

Thank you so much to all the staff who have come away for the weekend, and in particular to Miss Gates as leader over the weekend. Massive appreciation too to Miss Heason-Phillips, Mr Haugh, Mrs Emmett, Mrs Devlin, Miss Mitchell, Miss Kaya, Mr Burton, Miss Wakelin, Mrs Byrne, Mr Collins and Mr Wappat. Couldn’t have done it without you!
