Early in the morning our students were up in preparation for our trip to Cambridge. We all got on the bus and headed off for the day shortly after 7am, with lots of tired faces among us, but luckily the bus journey was a great opportunity to catch up on some sleep!

Arriving around 10am, our morning began with a tour of the prestigious St John’s College, whose alumni include William Wordsworth and William Wilberforce with the college being founded in 1511. The students on their tour learnt all about the history of the college and its prominent position in British history – our Activities Coordinators were amazing tour guides, particularly as the staff who had attended the university had passed on some great anecdotes.

Once the tour was finished, our students got the chance to enjoy a chauffeured punting trip around the city – much more relaxing than their punting earlier in the week, as they didn’t have to steer! This gave them the opportunity to observe all of Cambridge’s sights from the punt, a unique experience for all! Luckily the unusual summer weather Britain has been experiencing held out and students were able to relax in the sun as they drifted down the beautiful college backs.

After a long day, it was time for some more napping on the way back! A tired but happy bunch arrived back at the accommodation in time for a tasty takeaway dinner from Leon, before an early night to recover from all their exertions.
