ACTIVE lunchtimes are on the cards for pupils at Thornton College this year thanks to the installation of a super new Trim Trail.

The fun and challenging activity equipment was installed in the school grounds over the Christmas holidays.

Students from all year groups are now getting the most out of the innovative new structure which is proving a hit with juniors aged four all the way up to seniors aged 16.

The new Trim Trail was paid for by The Friends of Thornton, the school’s hard working Parents’ Association.

It consists of a variety of pieces of equipment, designed to improve fitness and health for all age groups and levels of physical ability.

It includes a swing rope, tyre traverse, a rocking log and monkey bars.

Staff say having something different to do will make break times more enjoyable for pupils and make the most of the grounds.

In total, the equipment, including new playground markings and picnic benches, cost £10,000.

Some of the students who are already enjoying the new equipment include the girls pictured above.

Development manager, Samantha Chambers, said: “The school has beautiful grounds and the trim trail fits in perfectly among the mature trees.”
