White Water Kayaking

Due to the location of the school, kayaking is a popular activity. The River Exe flows through Tiverton and the Grand Western Canal runs at the back of the school grounds.

To keep fit, the summer term sees the onset of surf season. A few trips to the North Devon coast reminds pupils of the joys of kayaking.

During the winter months, when the rivers are flowing, white-water trips on Dartmoor and Exmoor are enjoyed by the more experienced pupils.
