Haybridge High School


Each year Haybridge’s Personal Challenge Week in July offers students of all year groups a wide range of stimulating, challenging and enjoyable activities and this year was definitely no exception. Students took part in a wide range of exciting activities both on school campus and much further afield as they took advantage of varied opportunities to develop their skills, their knowledge, their creativity and their teamwork.

Over 100 Year 9 students and staff took part in the annual adventure activities trip to the beautiful Ardèche region of France, where they enjoyed canoeing, camping, walking and climbing. Other Year 9 students immersed themselves in the world of robotics, 3D Design and gaming and their week was rounded off with the very real-world thrills of Alton Towers!

Sixth Form geographers went to Iceland to observe its amazing, dynamic terrain while A Level Physics and Maths students got to grips with the phenomenal research work being undertaken at the CERN research complex in Geneva, home to the Large Hadron Collider.

Many students in Year 10 and 12 spent the week on Work Experience – in settings ranging from architects to a bank and a delicatessen to a law court.

Year 8 students’ Creative week saw them producing interpretations of scenes from Shakespeare– ranging from a sci-fi version of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ to a gangster-themed ‘The Merchant of Venice’. Students developed their selfconfidence as well as an understanding of various performing arts, including music, acting, prop design and costumes.

Great experiences all around!
