X27 Crew Day 15th July

As you are all aware, crew forms the foundation of everything we do at XP. Strong crew relationships are essential to supporting students to become the best versions of themselves. Quite simply: 

if we get crew right, we get everything right

At key points each year, we plan activities to refresh and revitalise crew to ensure we give students and their crew leaders the opportunity to bond together to make their relationships even stronger. 

With this in mind, I am pleased to inform you that we have arranged a crew day for students in X27 on Friday 15th July at The Tournament Ground.  A selection of the following activities based on individual crew needs: 

  • Pioneering
  • Bush craft
  • Team building
  • Air rifle 
  • Combat archery
  • Archery
  • Axe throwing.

Each crew will be participating in 4 activities followed by a final whole year group activity at the end of the day. This will be followed by a BBQ then a final period for quiet contemplation of our overarching question 

“What is my vision for the best version of myself and how can I achieve this?”

Students will need to bring:

  • A packed lunch. If your child receives a free school meal we will provide this. Please reply to this email to order your dinner. 
  • Any medication they require, including inhalers. 
  • Sun cream
  • Sun hat
  • Water bottle

Students will need to be in school at 8am. We will be leaving school at 8:30am and will return to school at approximately 4:30pm. We will update you if we are delayed due to traffic. 

If you require any further information regarding this please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your child’s crew leader. As this visit is part of our crew curriculum, all students will take part in the visit.
