‘Zipping’ across zip lines, balancing on low ropes, skilfully stacking crates and navigating an obstacle course, were just some of the activities that students tackled enthusiastically during their trip to the Hautbois centre in Coltishall.
Each activity offered different challenges, encouraging participants to use a variety of physical and mental skills to achieve their potential.
Using teamwork, they called upon their resilience and communication abilities (amongst much fun and laughter!).
GCSE Geographers visited Overstrand to complete fieldwork studies concentrating on the impact of the coastal process on coastal management and the community.
Students considered the beach profile, sediment analysis and wave movement to gain insight into the process. Local residential and tourists were also interviewed to see how they were affected and how much they were aware of coastal management being undertaken to protect the shoreline..

We are proud to sign up to the Armed Forces Covenant, especially with our local links to RAF Marham, pledging our support of all those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces of the Crown and their Families.
Quote from the covenant :-
“Families also play a vital role in supporting the operational effectiveness of our Armed Forces. In return, the whole nation has a moral obligation to the members of the Naval Service, the Army and the Royal Air Force, together with their families. They deserve our respect and support, and fair treatment.
This obligation involves the whole of society: it includes voluntary and charitable bodies, private organisations, and the actions of individuals in supporting the Armed Forces. Recognising those who have performed military duty unites the country and demonstrates the value of their contribution. This has no greater expression than in upholding this Covenant”
Live music and the aroma of sausages on the BBQ welcomed everyone who attended the Open Day at Meadow House.
Our students were delighted to accept an invitation to talk to residents and to view their various art exhibits amongst which was a stunning sensory tree and 'seaside' canvases.
We look forward to extending our links further with Meadow House particularly through our Art and Drama Programmes.

On Friday 28th June we are inviting our Cadets, St. Johns Ambulance, Scouts & Girl Guides etc. to wear their uniform to school in support of members of the armed services.
Serving personnel will attend an assembly at 8.50am which will include a whole school ‘civilian salute’.
Great tasting meals were produced in our TNHA kitchen as part of Food Technology Course taking into account planning, nutrition and hygiene. These amazing dishes certainly ‘ticked all the boxes’.
A young archer is using his talent to raise money for those who helped his Dad recover from a heart attack by shooting 1000 arrows with a longbow. Staff and students at TNHA wish him the very best of luck with his fundraising efforts and in achieving his goal! Follow the link to learn more from his interview with KLFM radio.
