Year 8 Horse Riding Lessons

A group of brave year 8 students have been attending horse riding lessons at the Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre. A prize-giving ceremony on Tuesday morning saw them receive awards and commendations in recognition of the skills they have acquired over the last few weeks.

The five schools involved in the sessions have been in friendly competition with one another, with BDA managing a very impressive second place overall. The students collected their awards from the Pearly King and Queen of Newham – a tradition of old London culture.

Mrs Schulkes said: “The students were all really well behaved and they did extremely well in the lessons. They all had great fun at the centre.”
