Partnership Work With Elite RAF College Cranwell

We are in the early stages of developing a programme which we will incorporate into our induction for our new intake.  The programme at the moment uses the talents of Squadron Leader Tamsin Kindleysides to work with students to develop the following;

  • Respect for all team members
  • Trust in others
  • Effective communication
  • Risk taking as a 'good'
  • Total team awareness
  • Strategic leadership

The photo gallery shows our Year 10 and Year 12 experiences.  The photos show students undertaking a fire and rescue simulation with special restricted vision goggles, discussions with senior Fire Officers about readiness to respond and speed of response.  There are also photos of the students participating in trust games and learning to rely on each other.  The main activity of the day is the 'low ropes' exercise where traversing the ravine full of 'shark infested custard' cannot be done by an individual and actually needs teams on both banks of the 'ravine'  to co-operate to enable the whole team to succeed.

We observed huge gains in confidence in students and leadership skills coming to the fore in students that seemed suprised at thier capability.  We have more planned with RAF Cranwell and look forward to returning there.

To find out more, come to our Open Day on Saturday 27th September between 10am and 3pm or our Open Evening on  Thursday 9th October between 6pm and 8pm.
