Yr 6 pupils get taste of life at Highfields

Primary school pupils due to join Highfields in September have been given their first taste of life at the school.

Year 6 pupils have taken part in a range of team-building outdoor activities.

They were set a number of problem-solving challenges, including a spider web and bridge building, whist staff from Llandrinio Outdoor Centre in Wales have been in school teaching them to abseil.

The Yr 6 transition sessions have taken place over the past week and will continue after the half-term holiday, giving all 252 students set to start in September the chance to get a feel for Highfields whilst meeting staff and fellow students from other primary schools. All pupils will then return to Highfields for two days in July for their full induction.

Mr C.Moody, Highfields’ Director of Sport, said: “The transition sessions provide Year 6 pupils with an opportunity to take part in a number of fun, outdoor activities and challenges whilst meeting students from other schools who will be joining Highfields with them in September.”
