In Pursuit Of Excellence

Wider Horizons

Residential opportunities are provided for all students from Year 7 to 10 as part of an annual activities week.

Wider Horizons take places place in the week beginning 10th July 2017. During this week the usual curriculum for years 7-9 will be suspended and students will have the opportunity to broaden their educational experience through a variety of projects and excursions. We hope that all of the activities provided will enable the students to experience the curriculum from different perspectives.

Year 7: Can either

  • Participate in a bespoke activities programme that will help develop your child’s understanding of London and the world around them. Full details of this project will follow.

Or

  • Attend a PGL residential in Torquay -  5 days & 4 nights meeting outdoor challenges at PGL’s flagship centre Osmington Bay.

Years 8 & 9.

Students in years 8 & 9 will be given the opportunity to join one of two residential activities as outlined below:

  • Lake Garda in Italy -  4 nights’ accommodation, full board and all excursion costs.
  • PGL, Torquay - 5 days & 4 nights meeting outdoor challenges at PGL’s flagship centre Osmington Bay.

Alternatively, for students in years 8 & 9 who do not wish to go on a residential activity, there will be a comprehensive programme of school based projects that they will be able to choose from. You will receive full details of all these projects at the start of the Spring term.
