Walking boots, rucksacks and waterproofs are a vital part of any PF girl’s wardrobe. From their bonding trip in the first term of year one, adventure is a regular offering on the PF extra-curricular menu.
All First Form girls take part in a bonding, induction trip in the Autumn Term. They are challenged in a variety of team-building and physical activities and have a great deal of messy fun. The trip is always a very positive and important experience for the whole year group and their year team staff.
Many of the curriculum residential trips at home and abroad will see the girls getting out and about and Active in addition to the many who opt to follow Dof E Bronze, Silver and Gold whilst they are here.
Activities Week falls in the last few weeks of each academic year and does not disappoint those girls who are keen to push their physical and mental boundaries and embark on an adventure. Some choose the Mystery Trips, others wade straight in for the Water sports options or sign-up for a Safari.
Probably the greatest adventure of each year is the much anticipated return to our partner school in Tanzania each Summer. Boarding a plane just two days after the end of term, our intrepid travellers from the Fifth and Sixth Form truly have the adventure of a life-time with an incredible week teaching in the school, getting to know the community of Tinga Tinga and taking a few days out to go on Safari, trekking in the Arusha National Park.
