Y12s visit PLASA27 Sep
One of the first trips that Year 12 students get to go on is PLASA the Industry trade fair at Earls Court which is mainly focused on Lighting and Sound but gives the opportunity to research on current industry trends in many areas which is a great resource for research for a number of the BTEC units and a good fun day out and a good way of working together.
Y13 TTA Camp27 Sep
TTA Year 13 Camp
Each year we take the final year TTA students away on a 'team building' camp in the first term to help instill a good team ethos .
for one night at Thriftwood scout camp, the students have to build fires and cook all their own food, make rafts and paddle them across the lake in teams, go orienteering, scale a 10 m climbing wall in the dark, then, after a night in the woods they pull on their wet clothes and go kayaking .
All the time they have to keep their fires lit, tidy their camp, collect firewood and work as a team.
