Students had an action-packed few days at Fairthorne Manor where they threw themselves into a range of adventurous activities. Nearly all of the Year 7 students went on the trip enabling them to bond with their peers and tutors and helping them to settle in to school life.
More than 180 students and 15 staff travelled to Fairthorne near Southampton. They enjoyed an action-packed activity programme that included abseiling, climbing, zip wires, canoeing, kayaking and the infamous Burma bridge, a rope crossing designed to test the mettle of students and staff alike!
In the evenings the students enjoyed a 'wide-game', campfire and talent show and they spent one out of their three nights away under canvas in large tents.
