Coast to Coast Adventures

Congratulations to our incredible Year 5 cyclists who took part in the Cornish Coast to Coast trail before half term. The epic ride, which runs across 11 miles from Portreath to Devoran, follows the route of the old tin mining trails. With some tricky terrain and the Cornish winter weather providing some additional challenges, our pupils showed great determination and positivity throughout.

The ride forms an important part of the ‘Explore and Discover’ section of the John Muir Award. This award encourages people to connect, enjoy and care for wild places.

Highlights of this year’s ride include the section around Twelveheads which has some tracks to explore and the skills areas at Bissoe with small jumps, rollers and drops. Of course, the real highlight was the sense of achievement all of our pupils felt after having completed the challenge.

Thanks to all of the staff and pupils who made these days so enjoyable.
