Red White and Blue Day.
We celebrated Red, White & Blue Day. KS3 classes focused on WW1 to commemorate the centenary. We are also raised money for Forces Support Charities through a red, white and blue themed Mufti Day. Donation total reached over £1,000.
HMS HEROES RESIDENTIAL
HMS Heroes members went to Barton Hall for a residential weekend to develop their social skills, encourage team working and support resilience development.
Younger students were support by older students and they competed against each other in challenge courses during the evenings.
During the day they took part in a lot of challenging activities in team groups, including zip wire, crate challenge, abseiling, vertical challenges, problem solving, challenge courses, aeroball and raft building.
It was all great fun!
