Shell, Year 9

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

Towards the end of their summer term, the whole ‘Shell’ year group participate in a week of outdoor activities largely based in the Brecon Beacons national park.  Pupils are accommodated as ‘house’ groups in bunkhouse accommodation where the emphasis is not only on the activities but also on domestic skills and social awareness.

During the week most will undertake a two day overnight expedition which can be registered as training towards the Bronze award of the Duke of Edinburgh’s award scheme.
