It was downhill all the way when a group of 42 students from King Edward VI Grammar School took to the ski slopes in Austria over half-term.

The group travelled to Nassfeld ski resort on the Austrian border with Italy for five-and-a-half days of ski-ing, along with two teachers, Rachel Mowbray and Ian Thrower.

After over 24 hours of travelling down on the coach, the group soon got to grips with the slopes enjoying four hours of ski lessons a day plus further free time.

As well as ski-ing they were treated to ‘tubing’, snow biking, swimming, quizzes and much more.

Pupils were given awards such as most improved skier, best dressed, and even best hygiene!

Between 80 and 90 pupils applied for the chance to go on the annual trip but only around half of that were able to go after names were pulled out of a hat.
