Devon is Delighful

A group of students and staff from Thrybergh Academy have spent the week in Devon enjoying the glorious sunshine, visiting the beautiful coastal towns of North Devon and experiencing some fantastic outdoor activities.

After the long drive down, followed by a restful night, the action packed week began! The first morning was spent surfing with Nick Thorne Surf School; perfect waves allowed for everyone to have a great time in the sea. A trip to Woolacombe followed for a look around this popular surfing town and its shops. The beach at Woolacombe is a highlight so a game of beach frisbee was a must.

Day 2 brought another day of exhilarating activities. Accompanied by Exmoor Adventures Coasteering the students navigated the coast line, jumping off various rock formations into the sea. Tired but not beaten yet, the group headed into Ilfracoombe for some crabbing before retiring for the night.

The following day included a pony trek around Exmoor (with one or two stubborn horses!) and a coastal walk from the Valley of the Rocks to Lynton which had breathtaking views. They finished off the evening with a camp fire to toast marshmallows.

More Northern Devon towns were visited on the final full day including Porlock Weir near Minehead where the students were able to participate in paddle boarding and kayaking. The strenuous water activities certainly worked up an appetite so the evening's fish and chips in Coombe Martin was a very welcome tea!
The students (and staff) have had a fabulous time, and the students were amazing - they just need the next 6 weeks to recover!
