Twelve pupils from Year 9 visited Abergele Fire Service for four days recently to participate in The Phoenix Project.

The Project is a fire and rescue initiative that is aimed at young people between the ages of 13 and 17 to experience a learning opportunity outside of school.

Over 5 days, students will participate in fire service activities that will challenge both mental and physical limits, improve teamwork skills, help provide an understanding of discipline and consequences, and develop confidence and self esteem.   

The course hopes to challenge existing attitudes, promote independent thinking and help young people realise their potential.

  • Year 12 Skills Day

    Year 12 students enjoyed a really successful Skills Day this week.

    Students participated in a range of activities designed to take them out of their comfort zone and to help them develop vital key skills such as teamwork, communication and well-being. 

    Activities included a Bridge building activity with the Institute of Civil Engineers, an outdoor skills challenge, self-defence, meditation and Zumba. 

    The day culminated with the ever-popular whole year group Zumba dance off. 

    A great time was had by all. 

    Thanks go to all the staff who provided the activities on the day, our friends at the Institute of Civil Engineers and to Aaron Bradley Bevan for providing the Zumba activity.
