Ski Trip 2016
During the Easter holidays Miss Pemberton, Mr Maltby and Mr Blackburn took 20 Year 11 students on a ski trip to Arosa in Switzerland. Most of the students had never skied before and by the end of the week all students were enjoying skiing down the blue, red and black runs in the Swiss mountains. Our GCSE PE students were filmed, as part of their practical assessment, carving and parallel turning with ease down the black runs after excellent tuition from the Swiss ski instructors.
The students enjoyed ice skating and playing Eisstock during their evening activities. The behaviour from our students was exemplary and throughout our stay in Arosa we were complimented on the attitudes of our young adolescents from the coach drivers, the ski company, other teachers and members of the public. Both the students and staff had a fantastic and memorable skiing trip to Arosa and we now wish them the best of luck as they prepare for their GCSE examinations.
