Seven King’s Ely Senior students, who are all members of the school’s climbing club, spent the first week of their half term sampling some of the bolted sport climbs on offer in Costa Blanca.

Each day, the group – Imogen Kirkpatrick, Tallulah Cox, Graeme Ackron, Ben Clubb, Sam Black, Charlie Watson and Alex Layfield – visited a different crag in the Calpe and Valencia areas, working climbs on the limestone cliffs.

Director of outdoor education at King’s Ely Senior, Sophie Cheng, said: “The group really impressed with their movement skills and three years of climbing training through the club levels has started to show positive.
