'I really wanted to go to Alton Towers but did not like the idea of kayaking or camping. My grandma persuaded me to give it a go. The trip was amazing and so much fun thanks to the Horbury Breakthrough project leaders. I not only enjoyed Alton Towers, but overcame my fears of kayaking and camping. Now I feel more confident as a person and can go on boats and can now camp. I would like to thank everybody involved in this project for not just the great time I had but for the people I met. I have made friends for life thanks to this project.

'It is a place of comfort you can go for help and support and it helps people to not be isolated and a place to make new friends and have new opportunities'

'A place where people can spend time with their friends and people aren't judged'

'The project provides an invaluable service to the Academy, particularly in it’s support of our more vulnerable students. Staff are always pleasant and approachable and their commitment is fantastic both during the school day and in providing after school activities. The financial support they have also provided to reward student success and to allow students to visit the Holocaust Centre at Laxton and study the negative effects of persecution play a much valued role in influencing positive behaviours. Thank you to all the team for another fabulous year'
