3rd Form Get Stuck into Oppidan Activities

02 July 2021


Oppidan Education have been in this week, with lots of fun team-building exercises and activities for our 3rd Formers. Dragons’ Den was first, with the boys splitting into groups and coming up with brilliant business ideas which they then had to sell to the Dragons. They were made aware of some key points to consider; how they would market their business, how much money they would need to run their business, and the all-important question of how much money they would be asking for (and how much of their company they are willing to give up in exchange). Everyone had great fun presenting their pitches and negotiating with the Dragons (who definitely weren’t just the Oppidan staff with accents) and learnt a lot about teamwork in the process.

From treasure hunts to laser mazes to welly wangling, the boys were kept busy throughout the three-day period of Oppidan entertainment! One the final day, the 3rd Formers got to take part in ‘zorbing’ (see the pictures below); many of them had seen the 6th Form doing this the week before and so were delighted at the opportunity to join in the fun.

Thank you to Oppidan Education for making this happen, the boys learnt a lot about collaboration, whilst simultaneously having a lot fun with their friends!
