Students in Amsterdam

May 2023


45 students in total travelled to Amsterdam for the football-themed trip.

Sports fans have returned from the annual PE and Sport Department football-themed trip to Amsterdam.

A total of 45 students in Years 8 and 9 enjoyed three action-packed days in Amsterdam with football training sessions at the state-of-the-art KNVB National Campus and friendly fixtures with local teams. There was also a tour of De Kulp Stadium in Rotterdam and a fun visit to Duinrell Theme Park and Water Park, alongside time to explore the city and take part in a range of fun evening activities including ten pin bowling and a trip to the arcade.

Before the trip, participants completed a 9-mile sponsored walk from Durham to Bishop Auckland to raise funds to support planned activities in the city. This also helped students to build confidence, resilience and new friendships before the trip.
