The start of the New Year saw a group of Sixth Form students head to Vermont, USA for one of our annual Ski Trips. On Wednesday 1st January, students travelled from Heathrow to Boston, followed by a coach journey to Vermont. They were able to enjoy a total of 5 days on the slopes learning new skills and taking part in activities such as tubing. Evenings were filled with a range of different activities including swimming, movies, games, quizzes and pizza. On the final day of the trip students travelled to New York where they spent the day sightseeing and shopping before heading back to Newark Airport for the overnight flight back to Heathrow, arriving home on Wednesday 8th January.
Mr Duerden, who led the trip, said “The students represented themselves and the school in a brilliant manner. They developed and progressed their skiing skills throughout the week whilst also enjoying the evening activities that were planned for them. Each student that attended the trip was a delight to take to America and they certainly impressed many people whilst there.”
