Royal Marine Visit

What it takes to become a Marine 

Our Year 10 boys and girls enjoyed a presentation and physical training session with the Royal Marines.

After giving an outline of their role they also explained the skills needed to become a Royal Marine Commando, for example, grit, determination, team work and leadership skills.

When the presentation finished, the students were eager to find out what their training programme entailed. They were taken outside (even in the wet weather!) and put through an intensive warm up and circuit session. Many showed that they already had some of the skills needed to become a Marine and were prepared to put in extra effort to impress.

Overall, it was an informative and entertaining morning for our students. Thank you to the Royal Marines for coming to Westholme.
