Year 11 students from Fleetwood High School recently attended a residential weekend away in final preparation for their forthcoming GCSE examinations.

Staff took the fifteen students to Winmarleigh PGL to help raise self-confidence, self-esteem and build upon teamwork skills by taking part in activities such as zip wire, canoeing, Jacob’s Ladder and giant swing to name a few. Time was also spent completing focused English, maths and science work in the precious last few weeks in the run up to exams.

Staff attending this residential stated that all students responded positively to this time away, starting their days at 7.30 am and finishing at 9.00 pm. Mr Barnes, Headteacher stated that on his visit to see the students, “"It was impressive to see our students challenging themselves both academically and physically outside the school environment. I'm sure that the experience will give them more confidence when facing this summer's formal exams."
