GCSE PE Residential is a big hit

Woodkirk Academy take their GCSE PE students to High Adventure in Skipton in order to maximise their GCSE marks for the new specification.

The new, more rigorous course requires students to perform to a high standard in three sports - the most difficult one to access is the individual sport. 

However, the Academy has supported the 34 students by allowing them to undertake this residential, which specialises in running the GCSE climbing course. 

The support from parents and carers in the build up to the trip has meant that the students have been able to take their PE lessons at the local Leeds Wall, which led to the students scoring extremely high marks at High Adventure. An extremely successful weekend for every single student, not only in the marks they gained, but in building relationships, teamwork and independence.
