The climbing club meets every Tuesday afternoon. Over 40 pupils have attempted to climb the Bourdillon tower this term. The tower is part of our outdoor activity centre, featuring a 21 obstacle armed forces style assault course; a 220 metre zip wire; a 22 element high ropes course; a 12 element low ropes course for younger children; abseiling facilities; 2 climbing walls and a 20 person intentionally basic bunkhouse for use as a dorm, or teaching facility.
So far, eight pupils have climbed to the very top, which at over 25m is no mean achievement. Recently, Kaya and Anna-Lena, have managed the rare feat of climbing to the top using just one colour of hold – the white jugs. Both are now experienced on the tower and will be progressing to belaying other students up the wall.
