During Activities Week, 43 students travelled to Calshot Activities Centre near Southampton which is one of the largest outdoor adventure centres in the country.
This was the school’s first visit to the centre, and amongst the wide variety of activities enjoyed by the students were shooting, kayaking, windsurfing, climbing & high ropes.
However, by far the most popular activity was track cycling, on one of only five indoor velodromes in the UK. The students had three sessions each in the velodrome where they learnt the techniques and tactics employed by Sir Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton and all our other track cycling medallists. The 'speed lap challenge' and '1 Km time trial' were particular favourites!
