On Friday 11th November, Mr Clist and Miss Prosser took our first Wider Participation group of this academic year to the Edge Climbing Wall. The Wider Participation Scheme is aimed at Year 8 Gold Medalists and as a reward for good behavior, they spend a day doing outdoor activities with the Outdoor Education department.
“We took a group of 7 enthusiastic girls – Grace, Ellie, Skye, Ellie, Rachel, Chloe and Megan. We started with a few warm up traverses, then we progressed to climbing with ropes and the session finished with some bouldering. They all did brilliantly and they were all very happy to give everything a go.” – Mr Clist
From their comments it was clear the girls really enjoyed it:
“I was scared at first and then when I did it, I wanted to do it again and again” – Chloe
“I wasn’t very confident at first and then I got more confident and I want to go back!” – Megan
“It was really great to challenge myself, it was brilliant” – Rachel
