The Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment aims to help young people develop self belief and provide an inspirational experience.

Rachel Gutteridge, transition manager/house progress leader at the school said: “It’s a great opportunity for these two students.

“We put Sikander and Sulayman’s names forward as we believe they will hugely benefit from this type of outdoor course and it will raise their confidence and boost their school life.
