Bawdsey Manor 1

On Monday 7th March 40 year 8 students adventured out on a trip to Bawdsey Manor in Suffolk.

The students had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the many activities on offer from Archery and Wall Climbing to The Giant Swing and Orienteering. The students were a credit to the Academy and all of the staff at Bawdsey Manor commented on how polite and courteous our students were throughout the stay.

Here are a few quotes from our students:


Our school trip was amazing, I loved it!!

I really enjoyed spending time with my friends and doing activities like archery, buggy building and playing ambush in the woods.

My favourite activity was rock climbing and orienteering.

It was an amazing experience and I would love to do it again.
