KS4 Enrichment Opportunities:

As Part of the Exceed Group in Year 10, students will have the opportunity to gain more cultural capital with half-termly trips. More to be announced soon.

Year 10 Tallington Lakes Trip

On the 24th September, the Year 10 exceed group students visited Tallington Lakes where they engaged in a mixture of engaging activities designed to build their communication and teamwork skills. Students took part in a variety of water-based and land-based activities from raft building and kayaking to rock climbing and tobogganing. With the weather on our side, students were cheering each other on to challenge each other to reach their goals and overcome fears.

On the way back from Tallington Lakes it was great to hear several students complimenting each other on their performance at the tasks with each other and parents. One parent commented “thank you for taking the Exceed Group out on Friday - Evie had a blast. She came home full of it.”

With more trips being organised for year 10 and the exceed group, I’m looking forward to students being able to experience the local area and culture.
