Year 7 Residential Trip

Eighty nine, Year 7’s have just returned from their Carroty Wood residential.

This took place from Monday 28  to Wednesday 30 October. We visited Carroty Wood for the first time as this venue has replaced the old ‘Quinta’ and ‘Woodrow House’ residentials. The students took part in team building activities such as raft building as well as learning life skills for example being able to swim and ride a bike. 

The students that went had an amazing time and are excited to share their experiences. The students were supported by twelve, Year 12 leaders who were excellent role models to the younger students.

Thank you to all the teachers who supported the trip: Mr Cumbers, Miss McNeil, Mr Froy, Ms Snow, Mr Leyden, Miss Abdi and Miss Vekaria.

Year 7 Residential Quinta Trip to Amersham


The Year 7 residential Quinta trip to Amersham is part of the school’s traditions to introduce the new students to the school and their new friends. Over the last two weeks the Year 7s visited Quinta on either a day trip or a three day residential. They participated in team building activities with the main aim being to promote the school’s ethos of ‘PRIDE’ and School’s motto, ‘Spectemur Agendo’- “being judged by our actions”. Some of the activities included team challenges, archery and bushcraft to name a few. We also taught life skills to those who could not swim or ride a bike. The students behaved immaculately and participated in all activities demonstrating skills such as team work and communication.
