Sixth Form Ski Trip – February 2017

This February half-term 24 Sixth Form students, accompanied by 3 members of staff, skied in the Italian resort of Courmayeur. With plenty of snowfall in the weeks leading up to the trip, we were blessed with blue skies and sunshine for the majority of the trip. A fantastic time was had by all with lots of falls, laughter and progress made by all.

It is hoped that February 2018 will see a similar trip go ahead. Watch this space!

Calum was the runner-up in this category for his help in running the Year 7 Rugby team at St. Joan’s and for being so committed in the build up to this year’s Chess Cup match. Well done, Calum!

GCSE PE Trip 2016

On the Evening of Thursday 5th May, 37 of our latest cohort of Year 10 GCSE PE students made the 200 mile trip north to Yorkshire for three nights to experience some of the most breath taking landscapes that planet earth has to offer…

Below are a selection of photographs of our students Orienteering and Rock Climbing in the Yorkshire Dales. 76% of the grades obtained on the trip were in the top band – meaning these students have really boosted their practical grades – making those tired faces in school on Monday morning worthwhile!
