Year 11-13 Camping Trip 2018
As part of the post-16 programme, approximately 40 students from years 11 - 13 attended a trip to Adventure Mountain between the 21st and 22nd June 2018. The trip was part celebration as the end of this year’s exam series has come to an end. However, it also gave the opportunity for the students to foster good vertical working relationships and exchange ideas, experiences and advice on academics and problem solving. Empathy can be a convincing teacher. The activities the students where engaged in included; ice breakers to develop new working relationships among our students’ Year groups, team building challenges creating opportunities for teamwork and leadership, zip lining and a lot of fun.
And a BIG thank you to the teachers that accompanied the students on the overnight camp; Mr Osborne, Mr P Brown, Ms Leamon, Ms Jean and Kru Gen and also to Mr Barker who assisted greatly with the preparations. By Mr Peter Mason, Head of Sixth Form

Phuket Mining Museum
The Year 9s went on a field trip to the Phuket Mining Museum in Kathu. They learnt the rich history of mining in Phuket and how the industry helped Phuket thrive in the 1800’s. Students also saw transport and living styles of the late 1800’s. Many students took interest in the clothes, shops and the fact that in those days Chinese men believed that if they had long hair it would saw they were healthy so they wouldn’t cut their hair. To finish the field trip they had a quiz that contained information that they learned about on the trip. By Ms Milner
