YEAR 10 AWARDS EVENING: 28th June 2016 has been postponed until further notice.

Local adventurer visits students

On Friday 16th June, the Arter Library was delighted to welcome Matt Dollive, adventurer and cyclist, to speak to students.

Matt left his job at Loughton Leisure Centre as a swimming instructor 2 years ago to begin his journey as a lone cyclist across Europe, America and Asia.


 Matt cycled 16,547 miles across the three continents, and spoke to students in Years 7 &  10  about some of his experiences. His adventures included wild camping, pitching his tent on the side of the road to help make his budget stretch further and encountering some  challenging wild life, including scorpions, giant ants and a wild Elk in Norway. Matt also spoke  of the kindness of strangers during his travels and his experiences of an earthquake in India.

 Matt has written about his time as a lone adventurer in a blog and is currently writing a book for children.

NB The Headteacher’s first talk is normally very busy and the Hall doors are closed for safety reasons once capacity has been reached.  Parents are advised to arrive early or take a tour of the school first and attend the later talk.
