Year 11’s journey of discovery at Ghyll Head

Bridgewater Year 11 at Ghyll Head

Earlier this month our Year 11 students took time away from the classroom to challenge themselves and each other with an outdoor adventure in the beautiful countryside of the Lake District National Park.

An opportunity to discover more about their own strengths and abilities, the 3-day residential at Ghyll Head Outdoor Centre introduced students to a series of outdoor challenges including hill walking, rope courses, caving and kayaking, plus problem-solving exercises to encourage sharing, responsibility and working as a team.

Throughout the course, students were able to experience the outdoor environment and develop their understanding of the natural landscape, while celebrating both the personal achievements made and the friendship bonds strengthened together.

Our highly experienced teaching team is committed to bringing hidden talent and undiscovered potential out into the light.
