On 7th July 2017, 32 students and 6 members of staff piled onto a coach heading for the coast. After the week of terrible weather, our bags were stuffed full of extra layers and rain coats, and the outlook for staying dry was not optimistic.
However, once we landed on Marsden beach, everyone’s first thought was to get changed into shorts as the day was muggy and warm. The day absolutely flew by with some students playing football and rounders, others creating huge sand forts, and others choosing to sit and relax while making stone sculptures or making bracelets with Mrs Pennock.
The weather stayed so nice some students even decided to dip their feet in the freezing North Sea! The day was rounded off with ice cream on the cliff top and a very sleepy bus ride home.
A very well done to all involved, all students were a shining example for the Academy (though Mr Sword did manage to drip ice cream everywhere…).
