Year 7 Lakeside Residential

Posted by SJV - Tuesday 25 February 2020

The Year 7 residential trip to Lakeside activity centre in the Lake District is underway! Setting off on Monday, students and staff were greeted by lovely sunshine on reaching Lancashire, before continuing on to Cumbria and the YMCA National Centre in beautiful Ulverston, overlooking Lake Windermere. All arrived safe and sound and the students behaved impeccably at the rest stop on the way, and were a credit to Sir Thomas Rich’s. The first night meal was enjoyed, and the full itinerary is well underway today. A glorious morning for the first full day at Lakeside today has seen five groups set off on their mountain day and the rest are canoeing, orienteering and taking part in other team-building activities.
