SOLIHULL students visited Beaudesert Outdoor Activity Centre at Cannock Chase for days packed full of exciting challenges including archery, tree climbing and go-karting.

The Year 7 intake at Cockshut Hill visit Beaudesert at the beginning of their first secondary school year to participate in team building adventure activities.

This enables students from a large amount of different feeder schools to build relationships and forge friendships for life.

The visit to Beaudesert is part of Cockshut Hill’s programme of cultural experiences for learners to take part in, which help ensure that children, who might not otherwise get to do such enriching activities, experience them.

Jason Bridges, principal at Cockshut Hill said: “I am delighted that Year 7 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Beaudesert.

“At Cockshut Hill we want to provide learners with the chance to adapt to different environments, broaden their aspirations, build social awareness skills and feel rewarded for the efforts they put in whilst at school.”


Vince Green, CEO of Summit Learning Trust said: “Everyone at the Summit Learning Trust is so proud of Cockshut Hill’s drive to ensure all children have access to important enrichment activities.

“We know it’s vital that young people receive a well-rounded educational experience which also satisfies their curiosity and trips such as this one complement the academically rigorous curriculum that learners follow in our academies.”
