What a brilliant week!
750 students, seven residentials and over 100 daily activities!

Students and staff enjoyed bright sun and blue skies through the week as they took part in sailing, climbing, cooking, scuba diving, surfing, martial arts, photography, bushcraft and so much more!

Year 12 students either completed their Geography fieldwork or planned a range of experiences aimed at informing their future career/life path.

Ms Davidson said, “Activities included work placements:shadowing and university visits”.

We’ve received lots of postive feedback from staff and families especially about the┬áresidential opportunities enjoyed by students.

Here is just a small selection of the messages and comments.

Excellent group of boys and great to see them enjoy the experience.

We are so proud of the conduct and behaviour of team Italy, thank you!

The boys have been fantastic, brilliant surfing, great behaviour and really complimentary comments from the public about the boys. Very proud of them all.

Our son had the best time and has come home after a wonderful adventure with lots of stories to tell and memories to keep.

Thank you to the staff of DHSB for providing the boys with an amazing experience. Our son had a fantastic time.

We didn’t run a photograpy competition this week but if we had I think this stunning image from Ms Welton would have been awarded first prize!
