On Friday 5th May, the whole school took part in an Empty Classroom Day. After the success of our Three Peaks Challenge last year, this was an opportunity for staff and pupils to get out of the building and, in most cases, the school and enjoy and be inspired by the world around us.

Anyone who has seen the impact that learning and playing outdoors has on children and young people knows how powerful such experiences can be. Learning outdoors creates lasting memories, helps build a greater awareness of the environment, provides opportunities to think independently, and gets children feeling challenged and excited by learning. Children and young people are more active when they play and learn outdoors.  

You can see some pictures of the day below - we know some of them are blurry but the boys are just too fast and don't want to stop for us to snap them!.  We will add more pictures as soon as we are able.
