Year 11 Chessington Celebration Trip

Chess 1This half term HABS carried out its first trip since the pandemic. A lot of planning took place to ensure safety for all, and despite the anticipation and anxious feeling leading up to the days of the trip, it turned out to be successful.

On Thursday 24th June we took 100 Year 11 students to Chessington World of Adventures to celebrate the end of their secondary school experience. We also took 30 KS3 students with the best attendance and highest knowledge, integrity and resilience to award them for their achievements.

Our Battersea explorers, Michael and Owanye led the pack through residential areas, fields and tunnelled roads to Clapham Junction to ensure we took the shortest route ever, because as I learned quickly, walking was not popular.

Once we got over the ‘are we Chess 2there yet?’ ‘Can we just take the bus?’ ‘can someone carry me’ phases we arrived onto the train safely. Students were raving about all the animals they would like to see at the zoo. Dylan mentioned he would really like to hug a lion. He was strongly advised not to attempt this.

Overall, it was such a positive experience, students represented the academy well and seeing the students throughout the day in the park enjoying themselves and spending time with each other was gratifying. The KS3 students were amazing and were rewarded by the Chessington stuff with free donuts for their positive behaviour.

Chess 3Year 11s have had such a difficult year and it was good to see them stress-free, active and having fun -  up until home time then they were exhausted, sugared out and ready to get back home.

Once we arrived at school the yYar 11s received the final gift of the day, Yearbooks. Filled with memories and heart-warming goodbye messages from their teachers the day concluded with students nose deep in the books, reminisces on good times to the bus stop.
