This year’s leavers from St Saviour’s Junior Church School enjoyed an action-packed trip to the Isle of Wight last week.

The Year Six children, who will shortly leave St Saviour’s for schools all over Bath, traditionally spend time away together for the last time on an action-packed trip to the PGL Centre on the island.

This year was no exception with staff and helpers encouraging the children to take part in challenging activities including scaling poles, abseiling, a sensory experience, high swings and obstacle courses.

Headteacher Joe Beament said, “Many children far surpassed their own expectations by climbing higher than they thought and taking part in activities they would previously never consider.

“The trip is all about bringing the children together to challenge themselves and to spend time away together as a group for one last time. It is a fitting end to their primary years.”

The children will leave St Saviour’s on July 20 when the term ends and will start their secondary school career in September at schools including St Mark’s, Hayesfield, Ralph Allen, St Gregory’s and Prior Park and the Royal High School.

Mr Beament added, “We will be sad to lose them but wish them well at their new schools where they will be fine ambassadors for St Saviour’s.”
