Endeavour 2018

Endeavour is now a well-established part of the summer term with year groups all focussing on a different part of their development. For the past two days the First Years have been working on their ‘independence’ camping at Fairthorne Manor for two nights. The Second Year have had the opportunity to improve their ‘confidence’ on water, abroad in Normandy, with heights on a climbing trip, or behind the lens with a photography workshop and the Third Year have learnt about collaboration either in the trenches on the Battlefields trip, by working in teams in a Dragons’ Den simulation, on a cookery course, or teambuilding at Woodmill and SWAC. The Fourth Year have been completing conservation work on Brownsea Island, plogging (the latest Swedish fitness craze), on a Duke of Edinburgh expedition, or participating in a number of other ‘community’ projects with partnership schools.  The Lower Sixth have been looking at ‘self-improvement’, engaging in Biology fieldwork, open days, work experience, starting their extended project or making artwork to decorate a local charity’s premises.
