    Look no further! We are taking 16 students on a FREE trip to Whitehough Outdoor Education Centre on Friday 24th November.

    On day 1 you will be doing some problem solving (like in an assessment centre), working with others on high rope activities and having a go at archery. A trip to the local pub for dinner and drinks wiill follow.

    On day 2 you will be testing your map reading and orienteering skills with 2 challenges before making your way back to Manchester by train.

    Rachel Mutters, Dr Ben Carter, Karen Butterworth and Professor Louise Walker will be running the event and there is ZERO cost to you!! All of your meals will be paid for. Want to join in? They have space for 1 student per discipline below, doesn't matter what year group you are in:
