A year ago was the end of an era when we went to Quinta for the last time after going there for 14 years and now is the time for a new and exciting beginning of our Year 7s and Sixth Formers. Kingsbury High School has launched a new residential trip for the students in Amersham.
‘Moving it closer to London allows the whole year group to take part in this character building experience, either by joining us for the full 3 days or by coming up for one day. We are pleased to be able to offer everyone the opportunity this year.’ Annette Woodrow, Head of Faculty for Physical Education and Extended Learning.
‘Learning away has shown that a residential learning experience provides opportunities and benefits / impacts that cannot be achieved in any other educational context or setting. The impact is greater when residentials are fully integrated with a school’s curriculum and ethos.’ Learning Away Final Evaluation Report, York Consulting 2015.
Upon arrival students were briefed on the Kingsbury High School ethos and in their teams had to complete activities by using their team building and leadership skills. They had to show determination, perseverance and courage.
Year 7s were led by the Sixth Form students and staff, this enabled them to be motivated and inspired by their older co-student role models whilst it gave Sixth Formers the chance to further develop their leadership skills. It was a great success and most of all a fantastic opportunity to get to know each other and make new friends.
