Shrewsbury School

Outdoor Week

"A challenging week out of the classroom"

  'Outdoor Week' takes place in June, when the entire Third Form spend a week out of the classroom on a combined Duke of Edinburgh and multi-activity programme. Pupils spend three days in the Shropshire Hills on 'camp-based' activities and three days on 'school-based' projects or on a Battlefield Tour to the Somme and Ypres.

The emphasis of the week is on challenge, fun and teamwork. Some pupils will complete their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award 'Qualifying Expedition' and some will take part in group-based work, including community footpath projects, visits to the Shewsy in Liverpool, developing bushcraft skills, a military-style competition, as well as a conservation day with the Shropshire Wildlife Trust.
