As part of the Academy’s plan to ensure all year 7s have a successful transition to high school, the pastoral team organised a three day residential to Downe Scout Camp in Kent just before October half term.

Those who attended had the opportunity to take part in a number of fun and exciting activities such as crate stacking, Jacob’s ladder and archery. On the last evening, students celebrated a successful residential around the campfire singing songs and showing off their musical talents.

Over the three days students had time to make new friendships, improve their communication with each other and develop their team-working skills.

It was a great time getting to know each other and the year 7 tutor team. We look forward to running the trip again next year.
