Ready, Steady, Ski!
06 Dec 2023
It's all downhill from here! Students heading to the slopes on next year's ski trip have begun their practice sessions.
About 80 students from Years 11, 12 and 13 will travel to Italy for a week of skiing and snowboarding during February half term - including 38 who will be skiing or snowboarding for the first time.
Before that, they will be taking part in a series of 90-minute practice sessions at Swadlincote Snowsports Centre.
Teacher Ben Clarke, who will be accompanying students on the trip, said: "The ski trip is a really enriching experience and a great opportunity for students to show their resilience by taking on a new challenge. They are all very excited to get on to the slopes in Italy."
