Hundreds of pupils from Wrekin College tackled its landmark namesake as they completed the annual start-of-year challenge to ascend the Wrekin. The youngsters were joined by teachers, family and friends for the Sunday afternoon trek. Head Tim Firth said, “It’s wonderful way to launch the new term.
“Despite the rain, the view across Shropshire was spectacular and as always the walk cemented and began friendships and fostered a sense of belonging. This kind of event also helps the school community bond in a more informal setting, doing something challenging that gives a sense of achievement.”
Families were also invited to join a chapel service and a lunch hosted by Mr Firth.
