More than 50 of our students travelled to Sorrento during last week's residential. Here’s some comments from Mrs Hibberd who was one of the staff members accompanying the trip: ‘Everyone played their part and enjoyed themselves! As I was regularly at the back of queues I often engaged with members of the public. They could not believe how quiet and polite our students were. People kept asking me whether we were a 'good school' and I replied "outstanding!"'
‘A lady next to me commented how she saw 50 kids but didn't hear them - despite sitting on the plane for over an hour and not moving. Everyone slept, read books or relaxed- it was impressive!’
‘Our students walked in groups around Pompeii, which is a protected site, and I overheard people saying how surprised they were that these students were trying to learn more about the site. I think whatever prejudices many have about school trips and generally groups of teenagers, we proved otherwise!
‘Every student (and staff member) made it up Mount Vesuvius, which was a real challenge and something I would not have undertaken by myself, so I am grateful that I had these experiences. Our students really enjoyed it and it was a privilege to be part of this residential which was well planned and ran very smoothly.’
