Year 9 students climb Scafell Pike!

July 17, 2014 in Front Page News, Geography, Students by Miss R Masefield

This week 10 Year 9 students successfully climbed Scafell Pike the highest mountain in England.

It is a challenging 14 mile walk to the top of Scafell Pike. There is a beautiful “warm up” walk along the valley floor of Langdale before the first challenge, which is a very steep climb up Rosset Gill! We deserved a rest after the first big climb and Mr Barnes rewarded us all with a brew next to the stunning Angle tarn.
It can be very tricky to navigate from here if is misty but the weather was clear and sunny and we had amazing views across the Lake District and Morecambe Bay which kept us really motivated along with jelly babies and chocolate hobnobs!
After climbing several peaks and clambering over a boulder field the summit finally came into view. The final climb to the summit is a steep scramble but once at the top we had beautiful views of all the other mountains below us and we even saw Scotland!
We celebrated our success with lunch on the top of “The Pike” at a height of 3,209ft before descending back down the mountain and stopping off for a chippy tea in Ambleside.
It was the perfect end to a perfect day and we are very proud of what our students have achieved. They have shown themselves to be mature,  fun and well motivated young people.

Vivo Update

July 11, 2014 in Front Page News, Students by Miss S Bedwell

For those students not yet aware, the Vivo shop has closed for the year. Existing orders will be sent out next week (or you can collect them during the usual times), and the shop will reopen in September. Your Vivos will not go away; you can continue to earn them over the next week and you will be able to spend them when the shop reopens.

Each of the Year Leaders have been given the top earning students for each year group. These will be announced at assembly next Friday. Our top earning student from the school this half term will win the £10 voucher from Perfect Plaice.

Good luck!

Miss Bedwell.
