VALE OF YORK ACADEMY IS PART OF

Year 7 Lakeside

90 Year 7 students and nine staff headed off to Lakeside Activity Centre in the Lake District from 13-15 September 2017. This was the first year the Academy has run the residential trip which allowed the students to get to know each other and the staff, whilst pushing themselves out of their comfort zones. This feel of ‘reaching for the top’ is how we want the students to approach their learning.
 
The students jumped in head first and had a go at high ropes, abseiling, kayaking, canoeing, raft-building, challenge course, archery, initiatives and climbing. On an evening, the students spent time as a form class having BBQs and sitting around the campfires. 
 
Everyone was very well-behaved and it was fascinating to see the students forming solid relationships with each other and their form tutors. As the trip came to an end, the students said that they felt they could accomplish anything – if they can face their fears of heights or water then they can face the challenges in the classroom. 

Photos will be provided on dropbox to parents e-mails for those who would like to keep a copy. Thank you to the students for being ace, the staff on the trip and those back at school for covering!
