A muddy good way to beat exam stress!

More than 120 staff and students threw themselves into a stress-busting challenge - and got rather muddy.

The group, from Durrington High, headed to the Nuts Challenge course, in Dorking, as part of the school's strategy to promote positive well-being and mental health through physical activity.

With this year's GCSE exams looming, it also gave the Year 11 students and their teachers the chance to have some fun.

A school spokesman said: " The sheer volume of mud, having to get in and out of rivers and climb a range of obstacles made the day absolutely fantastic to be part of. We plan to organise many more events like this now!"
