Y8 enrichment programme residential
Residential school trips form an integral part of our enrichment programme, providing new opportunities for learning and the development of important life skills. At Bridgewater this begins for pupils in Key Stage 2 and continues throughout their journey, with locations and experiences supporting cultural enrichment and collective achievement.
The historic city of York provided the setting for this autumn’s Year 8 residential, where students enjoyed two days of team-building activities with specialist group leaders at the YHA York, followed by a day visiting the York Dungeons, York Chocolate Story and the medieval ruins of the Benedictine Abbey of St Marys.
Mr Worthington, Pastoral Coordinator for Year 8, says: “Residential trips are key to promoting the strong sense of wellbeing that we all share. These experiences away from the classroom provide a unique opportunity to expand students’ knowledge in new ways, develop their core skills and broaden their horizons.”
