We are currently looking into the feasibility of running a 3 day residential trip with The Bushcraft Company for the Y8s next June as part of their post exam programme. Mrs Russell and Mr Beckwith gave a presentation to the boys in assembly yesterday and the proposal can be seen here or further information can be found on the company’s website. We would like to gauge how interested our current Y7 boys would be in the trip and we would be very grateful if you could please talk to your son, take a look at the information and answer a few short questions here before Monday 12th June. The trip would either take place in the Hatfield Woods centre in Hertfordshire or in the new Broughton Woods centre near Milton Keynes and would cost £210 which includes transport by coach. An alternative programme at school would be provided for any boys not wanting to go. The trip is designed to act as a fantastic step towards the development of leadership skills; demanding resourcefulness, decision-making and practical thinking from boys, and we feel it would fit in perfectly with the interesting and hopefully useful post exam programme that we aim to deliver to our Y8 boys. We hope that as many boys as possible will want to be part of the bushcraft adventure and we thank you for your time looking at the proposal.
