On the evening of day two students dug snowholes where they then bedded down for the night - an experience they will never forget.

This trip was a fantastic experience for all those involved and will certainly live long in the memory of all the students, who took part.

A huge thank you to the staff and parents, who planned and accompanied the Sixth Formers giving them an incredible life experience.
