Beyond the classroom
For any student that really fancies a challenge and getting out of their comfort zone there is the opportunity to get involved in a 3/4 week expedition to an exciting and remote part of the world. Groups have already been to Vietnam, Peru, Tanzania, Indian Himalaya, Borneo, Ecuador. A team of students will be travelling to Cambodia in 2018, Nepal in 2019, Indonesia in 2020 and India in 2021.
This really is a wonderful personal development programme that allows students to develop a wide range of key transferable skills such as teamwork, leadership, decision making, time management, enterprise, initiative and many more. It is without doubt a very big additional commitment on top of student’s studies but previous students have shown that it is not only possible but often it can enhance other aspects of life in a very positive way. The cost of involvement in the expedition is approximately £3500 and the students raise this through individual and group fundraising alongside part time work and any creative ideas of raising funds. It is without doubt the chance to have a life changing trip and feedback form students that have been involved in the past is incredibly positive. We look forward to seeing many more students taking up such an incredible opportunity which could open your eyes to the world and help shape you as a person.
