A group of First Years had a bank holiday weekend to remember, spent adventuring on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset.

All boys were tasked with constructing their own shelter to sleep in for the first night, and cooking their dinner on the open fire. The Saturday began very early with all the boys woken by the sun at around 5am to begin an action packed day of coasteering and climbing. Half the day was spent in and out of the sea exploring the fossils and caves of the Jurassic coast whilst frequently using the fastest way of entering the sea, by jumping off the cliffs!

The afternoon was spent drying off and tackling the task of climbing back up the famous Portland stone at Dancing Ledge. Following a couple of hours playing football or artificial caving the boys got some well-earned rest ahead of the kayaking session on the Sunday. The First Years enjoyed beautiful weather throughout and came back with happy, if a little tired, faces.
