Since we have returned to School for the Michaelmas Term, our commitment to outdoor learning remains more important than ever, even if we have had to re-think how to arrange the activities.
We are lucky to have a spacious, safe and rural 500-acre campus enabling pupils to move out of the classroom for a variety of lessons from science and art to geography and performing arts.
As well as holding lessons such as art and science outside, pupils have been eager to participate in some of their favourite outdoor co-curricular and weekend pursuits. One such pursuit saw younger pupils travel to Go Ape at Moors Valley Country Park on the Dorset/Hampshire border last weekend for a tree-top adventure experience. Pupils said they felt challenged by the treetop aerial assault course and were elated when they completed it. They also enjoyed working in teams to challenge and race each other on the high nets.
