The Big Camp is This Friday!

This year's long awaited ‘Big Camp’ for all Year 7 students will be this Friday - 6th July! The Big Camp will take place on the Nevill Campus where students will spend the whole day on the field taking part in a range of Forrest school type-activities such as making camp fires, team building, obstacle courses, shelter construction and wood craft.

Jim Roberts, Head Teacher said:

Student outcomes will always remain a key priority at Hove Park because exam results so often dictate future pathways and opportunities for young people. However, my vision for our school also relates very much to the school experience each and every student will have. It is about identifying the skills, values and attributes that we believe students should develop during their time with us and the things they will see, hear, try and explore at KS3, KS4 and KS5. I have always been very clear that I want to ensure we provide experiences that all students can access and be part of, and over time, this would develop into an entitlement that all students could expect in coming to Hove Park.

At the beginning of the autumn term we came together as a community and won the OneFamily community grant of £25,000 for our Valley Campus outdoor gym. ‘The Big Camp’ is another opportunity for us to come together as a community to support all students in Year 7 to have the opportunity to spend the night under canvas and take part in a range of Forest School-type activities.

We are really excited about this experience. If you would like to make a donation to support us in making this happen – please follow the link to our YouCaring page:
