Year 8 decamp to south of France

Last week 68 Year 8 students spent the week on our residential outdoor adventure trip to the south of France.

They spent the week taking part in adventure activities such as sailing, kayaking, windsurfing and mountain biking. They also visited the idyllic town of Arcachon and experienced climbing the tallest sand dune in Europe, the Dune de Pilat.

The students had a fantastic week basking in glorious sunshine whilst taking on new challenges. Many even plucked up the courage to try the french cuisine, including Escargot (snails), and cuisses de grenouille (frogs legs). 

The students were a delight and worked as a fantastic team to ensure enjoyment was had by all. A real credit to Hove Park School. Many thanks to all the staff involved in making this trip such a great success.
