Year 7 students are invited to take part in a retreat at Lockerbrook Outdoor Centre, set in the beautiful Peak District National Park, Derbyshire.

Set high up in “The Peaks” and overlooking the magnificent Ladybower Reservoir, this trip offers our students a fantastic opportunity to meet and work with their peers and staff during their first year at St Peter and St Paul Catholic Voluntary Academy.

Making new friends and learning in a relaxed and fun environment will develop team building, organisational and problem solving skills through activities, such as mountain-biking.  These activities develop confidence and self-esteem which in turn helps in supporting academic progress as they develop through Year 7.
