Yorkshire residential for Form 6

This term Form 6 enjoy a week’s residential in North Yorkshire. Our base is the wonderful Cober Hill, educational and residential centre, nestled in the pretty village of Cloughton in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and Heritage Coast.

We start the week with a visit to How Stean Gorge to try some bridge abseiling and caving, a new experience for many of us! We also enjoy some fell walking up on the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors at Roseberry Topping which provides a great photo opportunity at the summit! Some of us had very tired feet at the end of this trek.

Our visit the North Yorkshire Bird of Prey Centre enables us to learn about falconry and see some amazing owl and hawk displays. We use the centre as a base for further study whilst we are here.

Our next destination is the Activity Centre at Dalby Forest in the heart of the National Park. There are endless walking and cycle trails here and you can get lost in the depths of the forest (although hopefully not anyone in our party!).

No trip to the coast is complete without a visit to the seaside. Scarborough beach is the perfect place for a dip and a bit of ice cream! After such a busy week we think we’ve deserved it.

Our journey home at the end of the week is via Flamingo Land for a bit of fairground fun. Everybody agrees this is the highlight of the trip!

Thank you to all at Cober Hill and the amazing guides and instructors who have helped make this such a brilliant week!
