Fantastic new Outdoor Pursuits Programme

Pupils have been busy this term enjoying a varied program of Outdoor Activities and as part of an exciting new initiative, pupils have experienced the following:

Sailing in both single and double craft at a local reservoir with the option to take the RYA level 1 Sailing test in the summer term.

Climbing at a number of different local venues, with a view to use this new skill as part of their CAS program.

Canoe and kayak taster sessions have been run at Hothersall Lodge Outdoor Education Centre. Alongside this a number of pupils have received training both in our pool, and on the River Ribble in Canoes and Kayaks, culminating with five pupils receiving the British Canoe Union One Star Skill Award, with the others waiting for a suitable time to take the test.

During the Easter term we will be offering Climbing, Abseiling, Mountain Biking and Skiing on a Wednesday as a Games option. Climbing and Abseiling will also be offered on a Thursday as an activities option.
