Taking part in an expedition like this is so much more than a school trip. This is a journey that will stay with your child forever.
In the summer of 2019, a group of 14 students and staff headed off on a school expedition to Morocco, organised through Outlook Expeditions a leading independent provider of youth expeditions.
This expedition was eye-opening, challenging and truly life changing; students experienced different cultures and environments whilst developing an array of life skills. This provided an amazing chance for students to learn a new culture, support a community project of those in need, learn a new language, make new friends and naturally, have endless stories and experiences to talk about.
Universities and employers are increasingly looking for evidence of personal and social skills. Expeditions take young people out of their comfort zone and expand horizons whilst boosting independence, confidence, teamwork and many other qualities that have a lasting impact on the lives (and CVs) of each participant.
The expedition was headed up by Mr Rampling who worked with the students during the lead up to the trip to help them raise the funds needed.
Outlook Expeditions lead the venture in Morocco and ensured the group had the best possible time. There was trekking across Morocco, working on a community project and of course time for relaxation and sightseeing.
