Outward Bound

A large number of Year 9's attended our Outward Bound 3 day residential at Dukeshouse Wood near Hexham from 07/09/2018 to 09/09/2018.

With lovely, and at times windy weather, students enjoyed a variety of team and individual tasks. Students and staff conquered fears by completing daunting and exhilarating activities such as abseiling, archery, 3G swing, zip wire & lazerquest.

Dukeshouse Wood complimented our students on their resilience and behaviour throughout the trip. The brilliant outdoor learning activities lead by the proficient and patient centre staff were completed with maturity and a bravery from all our students including some who climbed the high ropes activity and had to cross a giant see-saw in the sky!
