Community Action Castleton Weekend

This year’s edition Community Action’s Castleton Weekend has been a great success. A large group of 28 Year 5s, 14 each from St Ann’s and Huntingdon Academies, (both now affiliated to the same umbrella Academy organisation) spent a weekend doing the usual, namely scaling Mam Tor in glorious sunshine, exploring Peak Cavern, then on Sunday morning climbing up to Peveril Castle, and rolling down its grassy (but rather damp) banks.

Our team of Sixth Formers worked very hard and, along with 7 NGHS Yr 13s, helped make the weekend a very happy and relaxed event.

The children from both St Anns schools were particularly appreciative, positive and well mannered and it is pleasing to see strong links being maintained between our schools.
