LAKESIDE SCHOOL CHALLENGE 2014
Enter a team from your school to compete against other schools from all over the country, for the title of Lakeside School Challenge Champions 2014.
The competition is run over 2 days and teams are awarded points for a number of challenging activities, giving them an overall total at the end of the second day.
Each team will have a maximum of 6 team members from Years 9 and 10, although every School can enter as many teams as they wish.
Feedback from the School Challenge in 2013 was excellent; please see below a quote from last year’s winners Accrington Academy:
‘We entered a group of students into the Lakeside School Challenge as we believed that the challenge was demanding and required real commitment, persistence and strong teamwork..... We were not disappointed. It was great to see students embodying so many of our academy values. They demonstrated an excellent ability to adapt to different situations; a skill that I am sure will prove useful to them in the future. The centre itself is in a fantastic location, with excellent, helpful and friendly staff, who strived to ensure that our students got the most out of their adventure experience. The ability to be able to take students to new and engaging environments and give them the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities makes Lakeside a perfect location. Having won the first ever Lakeside School Challenge we are extremely proud of our students’ achievement.’
