Ten Tors

Jubilee Challenge


A smaller than usual group this year, but what a fantastic group! Weather was challenging on the Friday night and was cold overnight whilst camping. Bacon sandwiches made by Mrs Taylor and Mrs Lewis took the edge off the early start.

By the time of the start the sun was out and it was a beautiful sunrise. The sun stayed out for all the walk and BGCFL returned in good time and were only the third team to return to Okehampton camp.

Particular mention for Terry who achieved Silver medal for his second participation. Terry demonstrated excellent leadership whilst on the moor, helping staff and peers during tricky aspects of the challenge. Well done Terry!

Trinity sailing


A shorter trip than usual due to the bank holiday. We boarded on Tuesday and sailed for a couple of hours to anchor in Torbay. Wednesday we set sail for the river Dart, forecast proved accurate and the wind started to blow, increasing the swell. The wind was a westerly making progress slow and circuitous. Most of our students retired to bed due to sea-sickness. We anchored at the anchor stone at Dittisham, had a BBQ and returned back onboard for an exciting overnight anchor-watch.

Thursday raised anchor on the river and sailed into monumental seas until we turned Eastwards towards Brixham, where we went alongside. We did a treasure hunt around Brixham and treated ourselves to a shower in the yacht club in preparation for home. Friday we disembarked, had a chippy lunch before returning to school.

A great week despite the vomiting. Well done boys!!

Island Cutter Trust

A fantastic day was had by all aboard the Pegasus on a lovely day on the water.
We sailed around the Sound and all the students had the chance to learn new skills whilst learning about what goes on both above and below the ocean waves!
Well done to all.
