Year 7 Retreat to Thornthwaite


Over the past 3 weeks our Year 7 students have undertaken the annual retreat to Pateley Bridge. Students spent 2 days 1 night at Thornthwaite Campsite  taking part in a  series of outdoor adventure and spiritual activities.

Two form groups went at a time and this allowed not only team building skills to develop but gave the students the opportunity to create new friendships  and strengthen old ones.


Great fun was had as everyone took part in Mountain Biking, Archery, Den Building, Crate Stacking and a Spiritual activity.

The trip was an experience that students will remember fondly for many years to come and a great way to start their educational journey at SBSJ.
