Isle of Wight Trip

Form 6 arrived in school full of excitement on Monday 13th May, ready for their trip to the Isle of Wight. Following a long drive to Lymington Ferry Port, they made a crossing to Yarmouth and began a busy week of visits and activities. The first stop was Alum Bay, where they witnessed glass being made, explored The Needles Old Battery and made sand shapes using multi-coloured sand – all this in windy and rainy conditions! Next stop was The Fernside hotel in Sandown, their home for the week.

On Tuesday, whilst enjoying better weather, Form 6 took on the waves with body boarding at Wight Water before visiting Monkey Haven in the afternoon, where they saw some amazing animals! On Wednesday, they explored Carisbrooke Castle, before heading to Ryde for tree climbing in the blazing sunshine, and then finished a very busy day at Sky Nets in Sandown. Thursday saw them visit Godshill Model Village, the Donkey Sanctuary and Dinosaur Isle in the afternoon; a very busy day!

Friday, the final day on the IOW, saw Form 6 pack their bags before enjoying their last breakfast and heading out to play Dino Golf. Later in the day the ferry brought the class safely to Portsmouth and their coach journey home – it certainly was a quieter journey than the one they had made on Monday!
