Pupils from Year 6 are given the opportunity to undertake a residential retreat to Alton Castle. Here, our children work with a team of ten young adult volunteers on a peer ministry basis. The retreat is based around a variety of outdoor activities that make the most of Alton's beautiful location. These include trekking, mountain biking, night-line, archery, survival, the adventure course and the use an indoor climbing wall.
The activities provide a challenge that help pupils to grow in personal confidence and in teamwork skills. The theme of our retreat was discipleship, engaging Year 6 in reflection upon their relationship with God and their neighbour.
