Year 7 down on the farm!

27 September 2017

One of the first priorities for our new Year 7 is getting to know one another. So every year, we take our new pupils – all 180 of them – on a fantastic outing to Blackland Farm. In the glorious Sussex countryside, the students work together on a range of fun outdoor activities.

Call it team-building. Call it confidence-building. Call it building new friendships. Or you can just call it a great day out!

In the words of our Year 7 students:

‘I made some new friends and it was really good.’

‘I really enjoyed abseiling. It was so high, I could not believe I’d done it.’

‘I loved being outside and working as a team.’

‘The best part of the day for me was when we climbed the tree. I have never climbed a tree before.’

‘It was a great day that I will never forget.’
