The Jon Egging Trust/Blue Skies Programme

Did you know we are the first school in Oxfordshire to be working in partnership with the Jon Egging Trust. The trust was set up in 2011 following the tragic death of Red Arrows pilot Jon Egging during the Bournemouth Air Show.

14 of our students, have been selected using set criteria for the Blue Skies Programme. The aim of the programme is to increase skills and confidence which in turn will hopefully help them to achieve higher in school and then reach their future goals.  

It is a fantastic opportunity for these students – they will be involved in all kinds of on and off site activities such as Team Building, Low Ropes, Navigation Exercises, Communication Games, Dinghy Drills, Parachute Training and Flight Sim, as well as presenting their work to an audience of VIP guests at the end of January.
