Last friday we took 75 year 11’s to Alton Towers for their last trip at Mounts Bay Academy. We left at midnight on the Thursday and arrived at 8.00am on the Friday morning to torrential rain which unfortunately persisted all day. The students and staff braved the weather and had a fantastic morning, even though we were all soaked within an hour. The advantage of the weather was that the rides had no queues! The students made the most of the day and had a good time regardless which highlights the spirit of the students involved. We left the park at 6.30pm and arrived back, tired, at 1.30am. A very long day with weather that could have been better to say the least, but an adventure that will be remembered for a long time to come. Thank you to all students and staff involved.
