Adventure

 

Every year our pupils are involved in residential camps which give them valuable experience in the challenges of the wider world. Over recent years we have visited such places as the North Yorkshire Moors, The New Forest and the Brecon Beacons in South Wales. Additionally, we have undertaken kayaking expeditions down the Kennet and Avon Canal and ski trips to Italy and Spain.

In June 2016 all of the Upper School walked a gruelling 40km along the Sarsen Trail, at the same time raising over £2,500 for Help for Heroes.

In July 2014, 30 pupils cycled their way from Devizes to Westminster, camping by the Kennet and Avon Canal and the Thames valley along the way.

They were met at the finish line outside the Palace of Westminster by fellow pupils, staff and parents, ready to be taken around the House of Commons and the parliamentary lobbies by Salisbury MP John Glen.
