Pupil ghyll scrambling on Grasmere trip

A packed four days of outdoor pursuits in and around Grasmere ensured our second year pupils had an adventurous summer break as they headed to the Lakes early in the summer break.

Pupils ghyll scrambling on Grasmere trip69 children were led by 10 members of staff on the trip, with Mr Cheslett, who led a “four pikes challenge”, and Mr Killey, who accompanied climbing at Keswick climbing wall, Shepherds Crag and Scout Crag, among the teachers who offered their outdoor expertise to help make for a brilliant few days in gorgeous weather.

Based at Grasmere’s Butharlyp Howe youth hostel, our pupils also spent time climbing up waterfalls, pool-jumping and traversing rocks in Stickle Ghyll, kayaking on Derwentwater and walking up to Easedale Tarn, as well as enjoying playing football and rounders in the village.

Mrs Muscutt has just launched next year’s trip, and parents should expect to receive more information very soon.
