Royal Marine Commandos Return

The recently appointed Sports and House Captains were put through their paces in a series of physical and cognitive challenges set by a team of three Royal Marine Commandos.

The tasks were designed to put the students under pressure and develop their leadership, teamwork and communication skills; skills central to the important role that these students will play in the school.

All students thoroughly enjoyed the session and the Royal Marines commented on how impressed they were by our students' initiative and how responsive they were to the tasks.

Two Year 10 PE groups were then set a series of physical tasks to give them a taste of some of the fitness standards required for life in the military. Hard work really does pay off!
