Year 9 visiting Saltaire, a UNESCO World Heritage site featuring a village and mill built around the Leeds-Liverpool canal, similar to their home town of Bolton, and now home to the largest David Hockney art collection in Europe.
Year 10 undertook some physical and mental training at Farmer Strong.
And Year 11 undertook workshops with Milk Education, looking at Diversity and Mental Health.

The day was a huge success, and thanks go to both students and staff for ensuring that students not only got the foundation knowledge that will bring their learning to life, but also developed key skills and life skills that will set them apart at interview in their next steps of education or employment.
