Published on 23/05/19

Jane Austen College students enjoyed an action-packed weekend away at an outdoor sports and activity centre.

Seventy pupils from Year 7 to 9 visited the PGL outdoor education centre in Shrewsbury from May 10 to 12.

They took part in sporting activities including football coaching sessions led by UEFA qualified coaches, and a national netball competition.

Off the pitch, the schedule included a range of adrenaline-fuelled activities like raft building, climbing, abseiling, and quad biking.

Head of PE Ben Atkins said: "All students were a credit to the school for the entire weekend, receiving lots of praise from staff who work at the centre."
