Post-16 recently enjoyed a residential last month in Ilkley.
Over a hundred year 12 learners took part in the Post-16 residential in mid-September. Held at Curly Hill in Ilkley, four groups of around 25 learners spent 24 hours making new and cementing old friendships, learning new skills and having a lot of fun.
The main activity was a ‘Come Dine with Me’ challenge where groups of learners each had to plan, shop for, prepare and serve a course of a meal. The teachers then judged them on aesthetics, hygiene, skill level and taste. The overall winners scored an impressive 20/20 – congratulations to Saul, Kieren and Daman who cooked some delicious tortilla dippers making everything, including the Tortillas, from scratch!
The learners also enjoyed some free time playing sports, pool, board games and computer games as well as exploring the campsite.
Daniel Mosby, Post-16 entitlement leader, commented: “It was a hugely enjoyable week with the learners. They learned a number of new skills and hopefully made some brilliant memories. This was a first for the Academy but one that is sure to become an annual part of the Post-16 experience.”
