Year 8 enjoyed a wonderful 3 day residential trip to Dartmoor in wall-to-wall glorious sunshine! The purpose of the trip was for the children to complete geography field work for their independent project work, but it also included a challenging 8 mile hike, during which we visited several tors in the area. The children were lucky enough to enjoy some fantastic views, with a vista from Dartmoor to the coast thanks to the perfectly clear weather we experienced. Climbing Hay-tor was a highlight, and Year 8 were able to bond as team to help each other complete the challenging hike and climb. The children were wonderful representatives for the school - true ambassadors for our school values of honesty, respect and happiness. They also demonstrated the true meaning of our motto ‘In Aeternum Intrepidus’, particularly during the last 2 miles of the hike!
