Dearne Valley Visit


This week saw the long awaited Year 8 Dearne Valley trip take place. With 122 pupils and 10 staff on board - we embarked on our trip to Doncaster. Once there, the pupils took part in a huge range of activities such as abseiling; high ropes; fencing; laser and archery to name a few. We even learnt how to build and start our own campfires -which included hot chocolate and marshmallows of course! 

In total the pupils took part in 8 activities throughout the course of their two days away - which might explain the tired eyes back in the Academy today - and that is just the staff!! 

The pupils were a credit to Winifred Holtby and fully embraced the challenges they were faced with throughout their few days away. 

We hope you all enjoyed your time with us and can spot yourselves in some of the photos taken!
