Activities Week 2020
Activities Week takes place from 6th - 10th July 2020.
Year 7 pupils will be visiting the Lake District from 6th- 10th July 2020. Pupils will be staying in Great Tower Scout Camp which is situated close to the east shore of Lake Windermere. The 250 acres of heavily wooded and rocky terrain are an ideal base for adventurous activities and exploring the beautiful surroundings of the Lake District National Park. Pupils will be camping, learning to cater for themselves and embarking on three days of walking among some of the most stunning landscapes in the area. They will have the opportunity to develop their team building and leadership skills and build stronger friendships with others in their year. The Head of Mathematics, Mr Revie, has run this trip for a number of years and it is not only greatly enjoyed by pupils, but also provides them with really valuable and memorable new experiences.
Year 8 pupils will be visiting Bushcraft Boughton Woods in Northamptonshire to immerse themselves in woodland life. The trip will run from 6th - 10th July 2020. Pupils will experience the joys of bushcraft, spending four nights living in the wild, sleeping under canvas and cooking over open fires. This residential trip will take pupils on an unforgettable journey of self-discovery. The week will include a wide range of activities, designed to enhance social and personal development, while having fun and learning new skills. From bushcraft, shelter-building, and wilderness cookery, to archery and orienteering, no two days will be the same.
Year 9 pupils will be participating in a trip to Northern France and Belgium to visit the World War I battlefields and memorial sites. Few school children in the UK are fortunate enough to visit the battlefields of the Western Front, and this Activities Week will provide an amazing opportunity for our Year 9 cohort. Our trip will take us across Northern France and Belgium, visiting sites such as the Somme, Ypres and Thiepval; places that experienced four years of human hardship, toil and sacrifice, before the guns fell silent just over 100 years ago. There are few places in Europe that can lend perspective and reflection quite like these historic sites. The tour is run by Anglia Tours which is an experienced company with a strong reputation.
The trip will take place from Wednesday 8th July-Friday 10th July 2020, with preparation days taking place at WLFS and the Imperial War Museum on Monday 6th July and Tuesday 7th July. Pupils will spend these two days learning about the geography of the Western Front and the different sites we will be visiting.
