Batchwood School: Make Everyday Count

Gallery: Alton Towers Year 11 Leavers Trip

To celebrate and recognise the year 11’s hard work this year, they were rewarded with a two day residential trip to Alton Towers. The venue was chosen by the year 11s themselves.

On the first day after a very early 7am start we arrived at Alton Towers just after 10am. The day was spent on the exhilarating and thrilling rides, many of the pupils conquering fears to go on certain rides. As the park closed we made our way to our hotel in Stoke and booked into our rooms. The evening was spent relaxing, over a lovely dinner, in the hotel restaurant followed by an early night ready for the next day.

The second day started with another early start and a delicious Mc Donalds breakfast. The morning was spent going on all the students favourite rides before we left to travel back to school. It was lovely to see the students enjoying each other’s company one last time before they go their separate ways. The staff on the trip commented how well the students behaved and what a pleasure it had been to accompany them on their last Batchwood School trip.
