Outdoor Education

Our aspiration is for all of our pupils to grasp the opportunities that the outdoor environment gives us.

From a Year 7 pupil on their first camping trip to Exmoor with their new classmates in September, to Year 13 pupils ascending Toubkal, at 4167m the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains, with their best friends; the outdoor environment gives all of us the opportunity to develop resilience, teamwork, resourcefulness, leadership and public service.

Our belief is that a busy pupil outside the classroom will be a successful one inside it and that on our hills and rivers, in our caves and on our rock faces we have the opportunity to develop those soft skills that are not reflected in exam results.
