BTEC Sport Outdoor & Adventurous Activities Trip
The Year 12 & Year 13 BTEC Sport Extended Diploma groups have just returned from an adventurous week in the Snowdonia National Park.
The group were completing their Outdoor & Adventurous activities unit where they had to undertake both practical and reflective tasks. Students were involved in a series of outdoor pursuits ranging from Coastering & Kayakaing on the coastline around Anglesey through to Gorge Walking & Mine Exploration in the Snowdonia mountains. The boys struggled to pinpoint a highlight of the week, for most it was the actual ascent of Mount Snowdon itself.
Course leader Mr Chambers' goals for the week were to not only complete a unit on their course but to hopefully foster a life long love for adventurous activities in the great outdoors; and perhaps even promote the development of the adventurous activities instructors of the future.
Both year groups continue to attain highly throughout their courses, with many of the Year 13 students already being accepted on University courses as far apart as Bath and America. It is hoped that the pathways that the current Year 13 will be undertaking from Summer 2016, will have a very positive effect on the aspirations of the Year 12 group and the BTEC cohorts of the future.
