Year 7 & 8 Osmington Bay Residential 2017

 The ICC Science Faculty are taking a group of Year 7 and 8 students on a residential trip to Osmington Bay, Dorset in July 2017. The trip will take place from Monday 17th July – Friday 21st July 2017 and will involve a range of active science sessions and outdoor pursuits.

This is a very exciting opportunity for students to be involved in a huge range of activities on water and land whilst developing their science knowledge and understanding at PGL where they will be able to develop personal qualities such as initiative, self-reliance, responsibility and perseverance..
