Mandarin at Gosforth Academy Sixth Form

Overseas Visits

Each year twenty selected students participate in a World Challenge Expedition. In recent years the expedition has been in a variety of locations including Cambodia, Belize, Uzbekistan and Uganda. 

World Challenge is an adventure of a lifetime. Firstly, the challenge has a fundraising element then, on the expedition students will meet many challenges whilst trekking and completing a project to help a community overseas.

After completing these challenges, they get the opportunity to see some of the fantastic scenery and sights their location has to offer whilst on a well-deserved rest and relaxation break, before flying home.

This challenge is a wonderful way to put into practice the different Character Education virtues students have developed over their time at Gosforth Academy.
