Costa Brava Trip

Off to sunny Spain for Westholme’s Year 8 & 9 girls!

During the half term holidays, twenty four pupils from Years 8 and 9 travelled to the Costa Brava in northern Spain with Miss Edgar, Mrs Hampson and Mrs Waldron. 

Five days were spent in the picturesque resort of Tossa de Mar.  The trip included daily excursions including a day trip to Port Aventura Theme Park, a morning visiting the medieval town of Girona and a day in Barcelona where the girls visited several works by modernist architect Antoni Gaudi, including the Parc Guell, the unfinished Sagrada Familia Cathedral and the famous houses, Casa Mila and Casa Battlo.  They also strolled down Las Ramblas and visited Boiqueria Market and had a chance to enjoy some retail therapy in Barcelona’s many boutiques. 


Various enjoyable activities were organised in the evenings which included a quiz night, a beetle drive, a tapas evening and bowling.  Everyone enjoyed their week in the Spanish sunshine and many girls begged the staff to organise another trip next year.  The girls were impeccably behaved and a credit to Westholme.
