Team building day develops our students’ leadership skills

35 of our Year 10 students who have expressed an interest in becoming a prefect put into practice their teamwork, communication and leadership skills in a day of challenges at Outdoors in the City.

From abseiling to zip wires, high ropes, orienteering and climbing walls the students conquered their fears and developed vital skills that are needed day to day, whilst also having great fun.

The day was part of our prefect selection process. Before this latest challenge our students have taken part in a rigorous interview programme with external professionals from Ark central and local businesses to ensure we select the most dedicated, trustworthy and professional students within the academy. The best applicants will be selected to be our prefects.

Well done to all the students involved who really rose to the challenge.
