As the first group head home from Ullswater, we wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate our students' achievements from an incredible week in the Lake District whilst on their outdoor learning programme.

Our staff and the instructors have witnessed first-hand great success, along with amazing transformations in student confidence, collaboration and resilience.

Over the week the students have taken part in a range of adventurous activities such as climbing, canoeing, mountain walking, scrambling and expedition. They have certainly faced the challenges thrown at them and have formed firm bonds with their peers. This fantastic opportunity has seen the groups take part in unique experiences that will create collective memories, promote strong friendships and instill a growth mindset.

We have also managed to pop together a few highlights from activities on Thursday.
