What a brilliant week!

Curriculum Enrichment Week 2019 saw over 350 students on residentials across six countries and nearly 400 students on daily activities. 

A big thank you to staff and students for such a wonderful week and special thanks to Mr Coombes, Mrs Donnelly and Mrs Rasmussen who make it all possible.

This year our residentials took us to Bushcraft, Barcelona, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Cornwall, Sicilly, Geneva and Pembrokshire. We also sailed around the Cornish coast.

Here are just a few of the positive comments we have received:-

“I’ve been blown away by the photos of all the amazing things the boys have been given the opportunity to do this week. Hats off to the brilliant staff who made it all happen for them”

“My son is in year 7 and I can’t believe what he’s got to look forward to in years to come. Amazing school and staff”

“Boys have been exceptional this week. A great credit”

“Boys conducted themselves with the utmost politeness and courtesy”

“Students are confident in their communication skills”

We also enjoyed many daily activities as this next set of photos show. Please scroll through our Twitter hashtag #dhsbcew to see the full extent of our adventures.

From some students this was a week for work experience. Here is Daniel working at PC World-Carphone Warehouse at Marsh Mills gaining great experience in customer service, business and retail.

Year 13 students enjoyed their prom on Wednesday evening.

And, as always, our staff had a lot of fun during the week too…
