Year 7 PGL Trip 2017 (for students starting in September 2017)

Outdoor and Adventurous Activities Trip

Group 1: 6th - 8th October 2017 and Group 2: 13th - 15th October 2017

We would like to invite our Year 7 students who are joining us in September 2017 to an exciting, challenging and social adventure activities trip, based at the PGL Centre at Osmington Bay in Dorset.

We believe that this trip will suit those students who may benefit from learning teamwork and communication skills, in addition to being an invaluable opportunity for them to take part in exciting and challenging activities. We consider that this trip offers excellent value for money and are positive that it will prove to be both enjoyable whilst providing excellent stimuli for personal development.

Osmington Bay is situated right by the sea just outside Weymouth, in the heart of Dorset’s World Heritage site, ‘The Jurassic Coast’. The Centre is set in 45 acres of grounds and is one of their biggest centres offering great outdoor facilities; high and low ropes courses, abseiling towers, a football pitch and an underground tunnel trail.  Water sports take place on the Isle of Portland, a multi-million pound facility where the sailing for the 2012 Olympics took place.

There is a fully supervised programme of evening activities including quizzes and team games.

Due to the size of the cohort, the trip will run on 6th -  8th October 2017 and 13th - 15th October 2017 with half of the year group attending on each weekend. Once students have had time to settle into the school, we will notify parents on which weekend their child will be attending.

The cost of the trip will be £150 and includes:

  • Full board accommodation in two to four bedded chalets, all with en-suite bathrooms
  • Meals whilst at PGL
  • Return coach travel from school
