The Great ‘Great Escape’

 TheGreatEscape

On Monday 12th June, all our Year 7s went to the newly relocated Great Escape for a day of outward bound challenges. The difference with this particular visit was that it also involved all our Year 6 pupils from local primary schools, about 140 young people in total. The weather was kind, albeit a bit blustery and cool, and spirits were high. After an interesting journey up the single track, courtesy of M&J, no time was wasted forming mixed-aged teams and getting stuck into the activities. Whether they were trying to build block towers using a human crane, or attempting to cross shark infested waters using only barrels and boards, or crate-stacking, or one of the other many activities, all of them required communication, ideas and teamwork. I am not sure the relay at the end was the highlight of the day, but everybody went home tired and satisfied.

The event was laid on by our Learning Trust (and free of charge to students), and we need to thank Juliet Morgan in particular for pulling the event together. Thanks also to Mark at Great Escape and his staff for interacting so well with the students. It was a great day.
