Ghyll Head 2016

Ghyll Head 2016

Year 6 enjoyed a fantastic trip to Ghyll Head Outdoor Education Centre this year. Situated near to Windermere in the Lake District, the centre gave the children a chance to get out of the city and try many exciting activities that they had never before had a chance to try. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed their time away and threw themselves wholeheartedly into every activity (literally in the case of jumping into Windermere!).
