Year 7 Elstree Award

We’ve had a lovely weekend at Elstree. The Year 7 boys have been doing their Elstree Award and spent last night under canvas!  They completed a series of leadership tasks last night followed by hot chocolate and marshmallow toasting on the camp fire). I am not sure they all got much sleep and it was an early start for Mr. Pilkington and Mr Attwood this morning!  After a big breakfast they all enjoyed a lovely walk through the rolling Berkshire countryside practising their navigation skills before returning to school for lunch.

Meanwhile, the other boarders have been swimming, playing endless games of cricket and football out on the lawns, climbing trees and haring round the woods.  The Fathers and Sons battled it out on the Elstree golf course on Sunday afternoon and the boarders had a delicious pizza supper.
