The School has an ongoing commitment to Outdoor Education. This unsung aspect of life at MTS isn’t something that readily suggests itself to pupils. Yet, once the boys “have had a go”, very quickly life-long passions are formed.
The Outdoor Education department has well-established links to our Games programme and the Combined Cadet Force. Pursuits include Kayaking, Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, Mountain Biking, Sailing and Wake-Boarding. There is a regular programme of after-School, weekend and School holiday activities. The School also takes part in the Independent School Skiing Championships at Les Deux Alpes in France. In the Summer term, pupils in the non-public exam years get the chance to take part in an Outdoor Education day.
Links with the Yardarms (parents support group ) are strong and the highlights of the Social Calendar are the Burns’ Night Supper at the end of January and the Yardarms BBQ by the School Lake.
