Adventure and challenge was on the agenda for a group of students from a Fylde school.

Students from Carr Hill School in Kirkham visited the High Adventure Outdoor Education Centre in North Yorkshire to test their limits and take part in fun activities on a GCSE PE education trip.

The group of Year 10 students took part in a variety of activities including orienteering, rock climbing, mountain biking and abseiling across five days.

Student, Jess Swannack said: “We all really enjoyed ourselves. I particularly enjoyed the rock climbing. We first learnt how to climb on the indoor climbing wall and then we got to out onto the crag which was great fun.”

The adventure week is organised every year at Carr Hill High School and helps students improve their grades, allowing them to experience sports that they might not usually get the opportunity to.

Splitting into four different groups, the students were able to experience all different challenges throughout the week.

Along with the challenging activities, students were filmed for a BBC Yorkshire News broadcast as part of a feature on the importance of Outdoor Education Centres for young people.

A school spokesman said : “Students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the week enabled them to improve their grades but also improve a variety of other life skills, such as their communication and organisation.”
