Year 6 Residential at Hayling Island

Year 6 had a fantastic time on their residential trip to Hayling Island, this week. 

The boys started each day with a quick kick around followed by a big breakfast to fuel them for the action-packed day ahead. Throughout the day, the boys faced different challenges with activities including raft building, kayaking, fencing and abseiling. There was also the opportunity to walk to the beach, climb the gladiator wall and try archery. Every evening, the boys were engaged in tasks such as the ‘run around quiz’ which gave boys the opportunity to improve their fitness and solve problems and the ‘egg protector’ which gave boys the chance to show off their collaboration skills alongside their creative and critical thinking strategies.

The trip provided important opportunities for Year 6 to demonstrate grit and determination and to further develop the qualities that prepare them for their next steps: resilience, perseverance, adaptability and teamwork. For many boys, the trip offered the chance to try something new and for some, a chance to overcome their fears.
