Condover Hall – Year 7 residential 2024

Brigid Alpers, Deputy Head of Lower Sixth

In mid-March, students travelled to Shropshire for an unforgettable two-night action-packed residential.

Students kayaked, trapezed, juggled, fired arrows, climbed the high ropes and negotiated the dreaded laser maze. All of the amazing activities were built around developing key skills, such as teamwork, and inspiring a sense of community as they got to know one another better as a year group. New friends and lasting memories were made.

Condover Hall is a special trip that many of our older students – and even alumnae – fondly recollect as one of the highlights during their time at St Helen’s.

Year 7 students shared their thoughts on this year’s trip to Condover Hall:

‘I loved the aerial trek because it pushed me to my limits’ – Margot (7L)

‘It was fun watching a film together after a really busy day of outdoor activities’ – Greta (7L)

‘It was great to feel more like a year group than a form group’ – Halle (7J)
