Climbing to new heights

November 1st, 2015 | Outdoor Education School News Sixth Form

Two students from Writhlington School’s Combined Cadet Force attended a week’s training at Halton Camp for Adventurous Training, to complete a course in rock climbing.

Climbing to great heights, Year 12 students, Joseph Owen-Pinkney and Charlotte Mason, travelled to Lancaster to take part in an accredited Rock Climbing course as part of the ongoing professional development in the CCF.

Once Cadets have reached a senior ranking, they are offered a multitude of courses giving them accredited skills to help train junior cadets. Courses vary from Rock climbing to Sea Kayaking.

Lt Nathan Marshall said:

‘The students had a great week meeting new people and learning new skills. We are very lucky to be able to offer these experiences to our students. We have a fantastic team of Senior Cadets who give a great deal of time, energy and enthusiasm to training and are a real inspiration to the younger Cadets.’
