This week, Year 10 and 11 students enjoyed a trip to the Port of Blyth. They took part in a team challenge in the afternoon, having to prepare and present their ideas to the rest of the group, very professionally!
The staff from the port made several comments about how impressed they were with their team work, professionalism, and innovative creative ideas.
2 teams were given a prize of £15 Amazon vouchers as they were joint winners.
Well done to all who took part!
