Uber Reward Trip 2016 - Full Report
During the May half term, 16 students travelled to Alton Towers for the annual Uber Trip, a four day, three night, thrill-seeking, high-adrenaline residential trip.
The trip was for the 16 students with the most Harris points because they show an exemplary attitude to learning, attendance/punctuality, Harris manners, and continuously strive to exceed their personal best.
Announcing the names of the students, Principal Mr Everitt said: "This trip is a reward for students who have been truly inspirational throughout the entire academic year and as such are seen as role models and ambassadors for Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich. A massive congratulations to these boys.”
Day One - Monday 30 May 2016
After a very early start to the day we arrived at Brampton Park (thankfully dodging the London rush hour traffic) where students enjoyed lunch in the blistering sunshine within the stunning gardens of the Brampton Manor.
After lunch students explored the gardens, woodland, adventure zone and pets corner!
In the afternoon we headed to Alton Towers Extraordinary Golf where students putted their way around two wacky 9 hole golf courses with outrageous obstacles themed around some of the most famous Alton Towers rides and attractions.......there was only going to be one winner!!!
Day Two - Tuesday 31 May 2016
The entire day was spent at Alton Towers Theme Park; from the moment the gates opened until they closed students tested their courage and wit on tons of roller coasters and rides (with zero queue time!); watched amazing live shows and saw some weird and wonderful characters!
The park is home to the Smiler, Oblivion and Nemesis, three of the world's best rollercoasters; along with Duel, Rita, Thirteen,The Haunted House, Sonic Spinball, just to name a few.
Day Three - Wednesday 1 June 2016
The entire day was spent at splashtastic Alton Towers Waterpark. The Waterpark boasted hundreds of fantastic interactive water features, from lazy rivers and crazy cannons to the sensational speed of the Master Blaster water rollercoaster along with the Caribbean lagoon which offered gallons of water for all!!!
Everyone got drenched and had a fantastic time chasing one another down the flumes!
Day Four - Thursday 2 June 2016
We ended our Uber adventure with an afternoon of 10 pin bowling at Hollywood Bowl......looking to bowl a strike or two!

A parent wrote to us to say:
“Many thanks from us and our son, who had an 'awesome' time. He arrived home exhausted after so much excitement and in true 'son communication' mode said the only thing he would change was inventing a travel/time machine in order to make the journey time smaller... Thanks once again for taking such good care of him and taking them all on such a fine adventure!“
