Broadhembury and Branscombe Primary School pupils unleash their adventurous sides at Bicton College.

Pupils from Broadhembury and Branscombe Primary School were treated to a fun-filled day of adventure to celebrate the merger of the two schools.

More than 70 pupils, aged between four and 11, participated in the adrenaline pumping activities at Bicton College.

Activities included high and low ropes, rafting, climbing, archery, canoeing, shelter building and orienteering.

Both of the primary schools are under the leadership of headteacher Katie Gray.

The chair of governors at the primary schools and academy head at Bicton College, Alan Johnson, said: “As the chair of governors for the newly formed Jubilee Federation it’s great to see the children from both schools working together and enjoying the facilities at Bicton.”
