Pupils Embark on Three Days of Expeditions

As the first half-term of the new academic year comes to a close, all the pupils at School have embarked on 3 days of expeditions.

Senior School residential activities for pupils aged between 13 and 18 will range from practice expeditions for all three levels of the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme to the Combined Cadet Force Army group having field and leadership skills training at Nesscliffe.

 Various outings will be enjoyed by younger pupils as they embark on a series of one-day adventures, with Year 3 and 4 pupils visiting the Tate Gallery in Liverpool, Year 6 pupils dressing up in Victorian clothes to enjoy a day at Quarry Bank Mill in Cheshire and Year 8 pupils learning about traditional tile-making methods at Jackfield Museum in Ironbridge.

Debbie Joynson-Brooke, Physics teacher and Director of Activities, commented, These three days of expeditions take our pupils out of the classroom to experience a set of new and challenging activities.
