Five days of high-octane, adventurous activities were the recipe for the Year 6 pupils this summer term. The Kingswood activity centre on the Isle of Wight was our base where the students careered down a zipwire, body-boarded in the English Channel, made rafts, learnt about outdoor survival, problem-solved, tried Archery and Fencing and entertained themselves dancing to Ed Sheeran. The 22 pupils loved each minute of it: “my best residential ever!”, “I was apprehensive at first but gave everything a go.” “A fabulous week which was not long enough.”

What was most impressive was how each pupil pushed themselves out of their comfort zone while at the same time embracing all the positive aspects of team work. And the food and accommodation was superb!
