"On Monday 22nd January, year 9 Ash students travelled to Beaumanor Hall for their enrichment day with the PE Department. Beaumanor Hall is a Victorian manor house in just outside Loughborough which offers outdoor learning experiences providing physically and mentally challenging experiences that encourage team-working, leadership and self-motivation.


The students had a choice of one of three activities; high ropes course, climbing & abseiling or bridge building, and they all completed a team challenges session. Team Challenges uses a number of exciting physical and mental games/puzzles primarily to bring out problem-solving, leadership and team-working abilities. Bridge building explores skills in structural engineering, rope/knot work, teamwork, physical balance and movement to design, build and test bridges that span a small stream. Safe to say there were a few wet students after this activity! The high ropes and climbing activities provide a more technical and specific skill-based environment where pupils can challenge themselves physically and mentally to overcome fears and achieve self-confidence and self-worth.

Year 9 showed great teamwork during this day, helping each other to overcome fear and thinking outside the box to solve problems. A great day had by all."
