Calshot Residential Study Weekend
At the end of March, twenty-eight Year 11 students took part in a revision trip to Calshot Activities Centre on the South Coast. Against the stunning backdrop of the sun shining over the Solent, the students tackled seven sessions of intensive Maths and English revision as Mr Cheesbrough, Mr Evans and Ms Greening pushed for each student to boost their current levels ahead of the summer exams.
In between revision sessions, students took part in exciting activities, such as indoor skiing and climbing, archery and teambuilding games. The behaviour on the trip was exemplary and all students seemed to really enjoy themselves.
One parent wrote:
"Not only did my daughter learn, but she tried new things and got to know people she had never really spent time with. From listening to the feedback, many of the students felt a real closeness in the group and it was quite a bonding experience. This, I feel is just as valuable as revision and has given them some special memories."
I’d like to say a special thanks to the staff who gave up their weekend to ensure this trip could happen - I’m sure the students will remember it for a long time to come.
