Whitemoor Lakes Trip

The annual Year 7 trip to Whitemoor Lakes Activity Centre near Alrewas took place from 13th-16th May 2019.  85 students accompanied by 9 staff enjoyed fantastic weather over the three days and were well looked after by the Centre staff.  Some student reminiscences are as follows:

“I loved the activities…my favourite was the fencing because it was a new experiences.  The staff made the stay enjoyable because they helped you conquer fears.” (Hayden)

“My experiences at Whitemoor Lakes were amazing…my favourite activity was the zip-wire because I conquered my fear of heights.” (Kirat)

“The most challenging activity was the climbing; although it was safe I felt scared but I tried my best and overcame my fear.” (Ibrahim)

“I pushed myself and completed all of the challenges”. (Ash)
