PGL 2017

For almost a decade Wetherby boys in Year 3 have enjoyed spending time away at PGL, notoriously nicknamed Parents Get Lost! This summer trip is an opportunity to celebrate the end of their last school year at Wetherby and all of their hard work. For some of the boys it is the first time they have spent a couple of nights away from home!

The boys stay for two nights in on-site at Marchant’s Hill based in Surrey.

All boys are encouraged to take part in exciting activities such as; the giant swing, trapeze, archery, fencing, zip wire and climbing.

During the evenings there is much fun to be had at the wacky races and also a chance to show off their latest dance moves at the disco! Though the highlight we are told is the midnight feast of sweets!

The focus is FUN and this year’s PGL was no exception:

The biggest challenge at PGL was rock climbing because we had to climb in the rain and the rocks were slippery! Another challenge was stopping Leo from singing ‘Purple Rain’ loudly in the shower!


My favourite part of PGL was when I was rocking on the giant swing. I felt the chilled breeze against my face and I loved it! I laughed so much and I hope I can go again!


The biggest challenge on PGL was sleeping because everyone in my room was talking so much!


The biggest challenge on PGL was climbing the zipwire because I am afraid of heights! But on the bright side, I enjoyed it!


My favourite part of PGL was the disco because I got to show off my dance moves!


I loved PGL because we were always outside and never really inside. I absolutely love PGL. It’s the best!
