THE TALL SHIPS RACES 2018 SUNDERLAND 11-14 JULY 2018 - Thornhill School THE TALL SHIPS RACES 2018 SUNDERLAND 11-14 JULY 2018

Ahoy there! Ready for a challenge of a lifetime?

All year 10 pupils were recently offered the opportunity to apply to sail to Denmark as part of the Tall Ships Races Sunderland 2018.

After much deliberation a decision was made to offer one of our applicants, Charlotte Blackery of 10H2, the chance of a lifetime experience by means of an authority funded place to participate in the above event.

Charlotte is well aware of how she will gain a range of new skills as she works as a member of crew on one of the amazing tall ships, sailing to Esbjerg in Denmark. Charlotte will begin her training later in January. Look out for updates from Charlotte!

Thornhill Academy staff recognises the amazing opportunities on offer through the Tall Ships Race, so much so, that together with our Academy Trust Consilium, we are currently seeking to sponsor 2 more places for year 10 pupils.

Watch this space for names of future sail trainees!
