Year 7 Camp


Set in the great Staffordshire outdoors, this Year7 residential is the perfect opportunity for your child to develop team building skills. This visit will aid in enhancing social development of the pupils and provide them with essential outdoor skills, through set activities such as, bush craft, climbing, archery, canoeing, orienteering and a camp essential, how to build a fire.

May I remind you of the following: 

  • A packed lunch with a re-usable drinks container is required for the day of arrival 
  • Warm clothes at night are essential as it gets very cold. An old pair of trainers would also be useful.
  • Please do not bring any valuable items or electrical equipment, as the school will not be held responsible for its loss or damage. 
  • Mobile phones should not be taken to camp. There are no pay phones on the site, but parents will be informed immediately if there are any problems. Updates and photographs will be put on our Facebook page on a daily basis.
  • The last night will involve a special ‘Talent Show’ if your child has a talent, either as an individual or as part of a group at camp, tell them to get practicing!! 
  • There is only one small tuck shop on camp. £5 spending money will be ample.
