Year 5 Beam House Residential

Our intrepid Year 5s had an incredible time at Beam House, in North Devon for their three-day residential.

Beam House is specifically geared to give children the opportunity to explore a range of land (and sky) based activities including the thrilling trapeze, abseiling, archery and the high ropes course. The trip was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to come together as a group and develop their teamwork and leadership skills. It was also exciting to see our children excel as individuals as they challenged themselves and overcame physical and mental obstacles.

The Truro School Prep pupils certainly rose to the challenge and threw themselves into every adventure with relish. There was a genuine spirit of camaraderie and our pupils excelled in supporting each other to reach their potential. With campfires (with marshmallows of course!), delicious suppers and dormitory competitions thrown in, it was a truly memorable experience.

Mr Morse said of the trip, “We are extremely proud of the amazing Year 5 children who showed great tenacity, courage and confidence throughout their three days in North Devon. It was a genuine treat to witness their good humour, resilience and superb manners throughout the trip.”

Thanks go to the Truro School Prep staff who helped before and during the trip, to the Beam House, to our parents and, of course, to the fantastic pupils who made the trip so enjoyable.
