Lord Wandsworth College: CCF training in the Lake District with The Costello School

Partner: The Costello School, London Road, Basingstoke
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: CCF

Over the Easter holidays 2017 the LWC CCF cadets embarked on their first adventurous training camp with our partner The Costello School. 

Aims of the project

 This trip to the Lake District included indoor climbing, caving, walking, navigational skills and overnight camping and was an opportunity for all the cadets to test the skills they had learnt during their training. The aim of the project was to help generate closer links with our partner school, for the cadets to bond and to challenge themselves in ways they had not done before.  



The weather was very trying over the week with Storm Kate and tested all our pupil’s character. Great perseverance and commitment was needed especially when climbing Ingleborough where nature tested the team with rain, wind, hail and even lighting.
