Many thanks to Dominic Brister, our Parallel Curriculum Coordinator and Outward Bound Coordinator who organised the trip for 12 students to go to Loch Eil for 5 days at the beginning of February. Thank you also to Kim Richardson who supported Mr Brister.
The students departed the warmth and security of Stamford for a North of the Border Challenge they’ll never forget!
With overnight temperatures well below zero, our students faced challenges most students can only dream of. Abseiling, building rafts to collect their lunch from a barrel in the middle of the lake as well as building a footpath section to reduce erosion and further damage.
With financial support from both the Outward Bound Trust and the Stamford Young Peoples Charity, the group wore their UK Printwear supported hoodies with pride as they made the 9.5 hour journey north.
Mr Brister spoke highly of the students, ‘All kids were incredible and exceeded my expectation. They took on some real challenges and are now so proud of their achievements. An amazing trip. I’m now really excited about taking the 110 Year 7s to Ullswater in the Autumn term’
