By: James Loveridge, Head of Junior Prep  |  

Year 6 had a hugely successful residential trip to Birch Hall Adventure Centre, Essex. Although not far geographically speaking, it was a world way in so many respects.

The trip aimed to offer children the chance to forge and strengthen bonds, to lead and to be lead, and to challenge themselves whilst leaving their comfort zones. It certainly achieved all of these things and it was also a lot of fun!

The centre was set on a farm which adjoined a National wetland Nature Reserve – a really idyllic spot which had a true feeling of wilderness. In true Swallows & Amazons style, tablets, social media and online music videos are swapped for oars, tree-climbing and Mr Roger’s campfire sing-alongs.

Children started the trip by erecting their tents and readying their kit for the first tent inspection – something they seem to really enjoy!  After that the days were punctuated with numerous outdoor activities, free play and eating! Highlights this year included kayaking, seal-spotting, high ropes and archery.

The pupils also enjoyed a moonlit game of ‘The Smugglers’ Challenge’, which essentially involved them having to solve a clue whilst evading the attention of the ‘Coastguard’ (aka teaching staff). Campfire talent contests and marshmallow toasting were also firm favourites for the staff and pupils alike.

The children really were fantastic company and they did both the school and themselves very proud indeed. Well done them.
