PUBLIC services students at Cronton Sixth Form had the opportunity to travel to the French Alps for an exciting trip.

The ski holiday is a favourite for students at the college where they can enjoy exciting activities and spend time tackling the slopes.

Upon arrival, the students were kitted out with boots and skis ready to get out onto the slopes.

The students participated in two hours of tuition in the mornings followed by two hours of free time in the afternoon to explore the slopes for themselves.

Some of our more advanced skiers boasted the incredible achievement of tackling Europe’s longest black run, The Sarenne, running for 16km.

At the end of the trip the skiing instructors held a small ceremony congratulating the students, presenting them with certificates to show the level of skill they had completed for the week.

Hannah Bolton, sport and public services tutor at Cronton said: "The feedback from every student on the trip has been great, overall they had such an amazing time.

"We can’t wait for next year’s trip."
