Shell, Year 9

In their first year at the College, pupils have the chance to try out a wide range of outdoor activities including sub aqua diving, rock climbing, mountain biking and canoeing.

In their first Summer Term, the whole Shell yeargroup spends a week in the Brecon Beacons. Pupils are placed in their boarding house groups and follow a programme of exciting activities, the emphasis being on the skills needed to be an efficient and successful member of a team. The week includes an overnight expedition in the mountains which can count towards the bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
