Year 7s widen their horizons

During the last week of term, all Year 7 students had the opportunity to widen their horizons by taking part in two visits.


The two visits were widely different, with one going to Carding Mill in Shropshire and the other to the Natural History and Science museums in London.


At Carding Mill, students could take part in real life Geography field work – including having a paddle in a stream! They also had time to visit caves and learn about the legend of the Welsh dragons.


Meanwhile, the students who visited London were able to go back to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth before exploring space. Highlights included seeing a life-size, roaring Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Apollo 10 capsule that proved that astronauts really could land on the moon.


These were two action packed days, but the 160 students who took part thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were a credit to the school.
