"The information was good"  "The powerpoint talk was so helpful and supportive"


In August 2014 and February 2016 a group of families and staff stayed at the outward bounds centre 'Ghyll Head' in the Lake District. The aims of the trip were to leave Manchester by planning a trip away that presented new challanges and the opportunity to get to know other families from school. 

Comments about the Ghyll Head trip 
"This was the first opportunity we had to get away for a holiday for 7 years.  It was wonderful!  Everyone got along and supported each other.  We had such fun!  All the Ghyll Head Instructors were so wonderfully skilled, they stretched us all and kept us safe. The zip wire and canoeing were thrilling. The campfire singing was great, we toasted marshmallows! The bungalow accommodation was beautiful and comfortable.  We didn't have to cook at all and there was lots of food'  Can't wait to go again!!"
