Challenge Week 2018 took place between the 25th and 29th of June.
A sample of the trips that we offered Years 7-9 are listed below and we hope to run a similar selection of trips in 2019.
Activity Day at Alpine Centre in Aldershot:
Students will have both ski and snowboarding lessons and have the opportunity to have some fun ‘donuting’; which is essentially sliding down the slopes on huge rubber tyres. The lessons are aimed at those who have not skied or snowboarded before.

Students will be given the opportunity to visit London’s world famous Globe Theatre, for a Drama workshop and Shakespeare Theatre Experience. Pupils will be participating in a lively drama-focused workshop which will enable them to appreciate Shakespeare’s stagecraft.

Students are invited to step back in time and experience the incredible challenges of military medicine through the ages and visit what was once the largest cemetery in the world, which contains important links to our military past. A must for all budding historians and those with an interest in medicine.
