On Saturday 3 September, the new Block 3 travelled to Ullswater in the Lake District, the 8 hour coach journey was tiring but we were rewarded with an exhilarating swim in the lake when we arrived, which definitely woke us up!

My favourite part of the visit was the gorge scrambling. We were all getting to know each other whilst having fun splashing about and scrambling up gushing waterfalls. Over the week the different tutor groups got to experience all sorts of activities, from canoeing to rowing to trapeze exercises and lots of other fun and challenging activities. On Tuesday morning everyone set off with their instructors on their three day expedition, carrying everything they would need for two nights of sleeping out on the mountains.

The funniest bit was making structures out of pasta and jelly babies. What started off as a competitive challenge, turned into a crazy pasta fight, it was everywhere, but some of the creations were amazing. It was all really fun and everyone was getting along very well and making new friends for the year ahead!
